Program Resources


 

The Southern Tier Library System has a number of items available for member libraries to check out and use in library programming. These items are intended to help facilitate programming in all our member libraries. If you have a question about any of the items listed, please contact Lorie Brown, Keturah Cappadonia, or Vickie Button.

Storytime Sets are designed for parents and children, in a storytime setting, to share a book together. Using Storytime Sets, your library can help parents lay a great foundation of pre-literacy skills.

Sets include 11 copies of one board book title (1 copy for the storytime leader to read aloud, 10 copies to pass out to caregivers to share with children), a folder with information for library staff and materials to copy and share with caregivers, and a plastic storage box.
