Oklahoma City —
The Cooke County Library’s “1, 2, 3, The Story is Coming to Me” — a project designed to foster a love for reading — has expanded from a service provided to local daycare centers to an outreach program for preschool students in several local school systems. “1, 2, 3, The Story is Coming to Me” launched in 2010.
Students from Miss Terry’s Preschool recently enjoyed the library program during which Kim Bradley presented information on how to use the library.
Cooke County Library Director Jennifer Johnson Spence said the project also helps teach children about their local library.
“The goals of this project are to expose children to reading and the services of the Cooke County Library through this special story hour,” Johnson-Spence said in a news release. “It is the hope of the Cooke County Library to reach as many children and families as possible through this program.”
The library presentations include reading time and activities which allow the students to ask questions.
Sessions are held in classrooms and in outdoor venues including playgrounds.
