TARRYTOWN, N.Y. It turns out that seeing their teachers during the summer is a popular event for Tarrytown and Sleepy Hollow kids.
Warner Library will begin its annual Tarrytown Teachers Telling Tales reading series on Thursday. The event draws anywhere from 12 to 40 kids and parents each week, Children's Librarian Patricia Cohn said.
The kids get very excited about seeing their teachers, she said. That is the main draw, I think. And overall we are very busy and our programs are well-attended.
The reading series includes a library visit from teachers and administrators in the Public Schools of the Tarrytowns who have volunteered to read a book. Teacher identities are not released in advance, making it a surprise for kids who show up.
This is the series' third year. The event takes place in the Children's Room from 1:15 to 1:45 p.m.
Cohn said attendance is kept during the series, and kids are often given a small prize. The event also encourages kids to complete their summer reading logs and to join the library's reading game, Cohn said.
After the storytime session, Warner Library hosts a free craft table for kids from 1:30 to 5 p.m. Cohn said many kids who come to the reading series stay to do crafts.
