After a nine-month absence, Jan Betty will be rejoining the Milanof-Schock Library team in the role of Youth Services Coordinator. As a long-time Milanof-Schock staff member, Jan has had a positive impact on so many children and families of our community.
There are a variety of programs returning to the monthly schedule once Jan returns: Sing, Shake and Sway, an unconventional story time that gets kids moving with silky scarves and musical instruments for little hands; Family Story Time, devoted to families; Sing & Sign Story Time, a story time that is not specifically for hearing impaired children but focuses more on using basic American Sign Language to open communication between children and their caregivers before verbal skills are mastered; Lego Night, an evening set aside for all ages of creative builders; and Family Bingo, a program scheduled after the dinner hour, when families can gather for a fun game and earn books as prizes.
Jan has a vast knowledge of book titles that appeal to all ages, and she is skilled in helping families find books to best-suit the reading levels of each child. Jan is at the Library to help all parents and caregivers discover what resources the Library has in-house to inspire and educate children of the community. We hope that you will take a moment to welcome her back!
