Welcome RHML Children's Space on the Web

STORYTIME PLUS GRANT awarded to the Richmond Heights Library

Richmond Heights, MO (December 2015) --- The Richmond Heights Memorial Library has been awarded a $2,500 Storytime Plus Grant for books, music, and story time enhancements, all designed to involve parents in early literacy efforts that include reading, writing, singing, talking, and playing with their young children.

 Babies and toddlers will enjoy story times with Kim that offer flannel board storytelling, puppets, singing, and creative play on Monday mornings.   Attendees at Kim’s traditional preschool story times will create original art relating to the books read, while slightly older children will learn about the natural world through story, music, and a variety of hands-on activities at Betsy’s STEAM story times. 

 Join us for Stories in the Park events on Thursdays in April, as Library and Parks and Recreation staffs are have planned lively, messy, participatory, story time fun for parents to share with their children 2 – 5 years of age.  Families will be offered a choice of take-home books at this event!

 These projects are made possible in part by the Institute of Museum and Library Services and Technology Act as administered by the Missouri State Library, a division of the Office of the Secretary of State.  To learn more about the Institute, please visit www.imls.gov.  The $2,500 funds will be spent on picture books, music CDs, and supplies for preschool art and science supplies that will be enjoyed by many families in our area for many years to come.  We will also be spending some of these funds on books for families that attend the Stories in the Park event held during National Library Week.
