Library Sprouts A Huge Success!

This program for 0-3 year-olds and parent helps to teach early literacy and learning skills. Sprouts is specifically designed for toddlers, taught by Early Childhood Education students from Purdue North Central under a professor’s supervision, and does NOT take the place of Story Hour.

Join us for the Fall 2014 Library Sprouts story hours — now at the Westville Library AND Wanatah Library on Wednesdays from 9:30 – 10:30 a.m.

Join us at one location or both!
Westville – November 12, December 10
Wanatah – November 19, December 17
