LISTEN HERE: Kids are Returning to the Priestley-Forsyth Library

Children Programs Gets Community Kids Back to Learning

NORTHUMBERLAND – As parents are coming around to the idea of their children participating in in-person activities again, the Priestley-Forsyth Memorial Library is seeing better attendance numbers.

Kim King, Children’s Services was on WKOK Sunrise and said children of all ages are attending their general programs and there is a resurgence of people attending their programs geared towards homeschooled children, “I think parents are starting to feel comfortable sending their kids to public places such as libraries. So, we’re starting to return to normal.”

King tells us that April 3-9, they will be celebrating National Library Week with events geared towards children. Also a virtual event, sponsored by PA One Book, will be held for the reading of Saturday by Oge Mora.

“Check our library calendar because each day, we have a different activity. We have on Wednesday, April 6, the Union County Fair Queen, Paige Rhyne, is going to come and read a storytime in the afternoon from 4 to 5,” King said on a recent edition of WKOK Sunrise.
