TAMIU Students, Laredo Public Library
Host ‘Saturday Story Hour’

Introduce your child to the joy of reading with “Saturday Story Hour” offered by the Texas A&M International University (TAMIU) Teachers’ Club at the Laredo Public Library main Library branch, 1120 East Calton Road, 2 – 3 p.m. starting Sept. 18 and ending Dec. 18.

This free program is aimed at children ages three – eight who must be accompanied by an adult.

Through Story Hour, the Club plans to introduce children to the pleasure of stories, create excitement about books and reading and encourage a lifelong love for books and literature while exploring a different theme.

“ ‘Saturday Story Hour’ is a family friendly experience. Through this program, the Club hopes to foster parent/adult-child interaction through their participation in the games and creative activities related to the reading,” explained Dr. Sandra Garret, assistant professor of curriculum and instruction and faculty advisor.

“Dual Language Club readers will also be able to provide a story time experience that includes language support for children who speak English as a second language,” Dr. Garrett added.

Children’s librarians will help share their expertise and help select age appropriate books for Club members to read.

Garret provides support to the Club by providing training, supervising, monitoring and assisting with evaluating club activities.
