Saturday StoryTime for Local Families at SUU

Published: September 22, 2014 | Category: Community Outreach

The Gerald R. Sherratt Library will be starting its fall StoryTime sessions beginning this Saturday, September 27. All ages of children are invited to attend for stories and an activity every Saturday from 11:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. for the remainder of the year.

A community favorite, the Southern Utah University StoryTime provides an hour of reading and related activities for children, ages 3 through 12. Directed by SUU students and faculty, children and their parents are welcome to attend in room 201A of the Library.

Phil Roché, instructional services librarian and SUU StoryTime advisor, has seen firsthand the impact of the Sherratt Library-sponsored story hour in years past and is excited for this year’s installment to begin.

Roché says that beyond helping young students remain active readers, the SUU StoryTime provides a unique opportunity for local schoolchildren by way of collegiate exposure.

"Bringing children to a college campus, to rub shoulders with college students and professors, helps them see that college isn’t scary."

All reading genres will be explored during the SUU StoryTime, which will run every Saturday from 11:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. till the end of the year. If you have questions regarding the event, email storytime@suu.edu.

Please Note: This event is not intended as a drop-off activity; parents/guardians should plan to supervise young children throughout.
