Hudson Area Library's and Greater Hudson Promise Neighborhood early literacy program “High Five!” is back. Our new spring session includes “Using Gardening Activities to Develop Literacy”, “Literacy Activities to do on a Rainy Day” and trips to Hudson Farmers’ Market, Greenport Conservation Area and Hudson Children’s Book Festival.
Each week the program begins with Story Time in the library with High Five! facilitator Kathy Mabb and special guest readers including the ladies of the Greenport Garden Club, crafter Robin Weber, and educators Pamela Badila and Hosneara Kader. Crafts and literacy activities, with an emphasis on dictated writing, follows. Families will also have the opportunity to explore the hundreds of high-quality children’s books available for check-out at the library. Participants will receive free books and prizes each week. Gift certificates to Rolling Grocer 19 and Hudson Children’s Book Festival will be awarded to all families with excellent attendance! Lunch is also provided and we will be emphasizing healthy foods kids like to eat.
