(Georgetown, NY – March 2014) All children are welcome at the Storytime Room in Georgetown, located above the Mustard Seed food/clothing pantry.  It is a large, cheerful room, filled with books, toys, games, and puzzles for young children.

Under the supervision of Teresa Hudson, children may visit the room while family or caregivers remain with them or visit the pantry downstairs.  As a retired teacher with 30 years spent in early childhood elementary classrooms, Hudson shares wonderful stories and interactive play which emphasizes language and literacy skills.

In the Storytime Room, children may enjoy the many toys and materials which have been donated by families and members of St. James Church in Cazenovia, as well as the Cazenovia Public Library and the Georgetown Mustard Seed, an outreach program of St. James.

Thanks to the sponsorship of these organizations, children come to the Storytime Room to read, play, and socialize with an emphasis on literacy development and sharing good books. Included are books and games for elementary-age children as well.

The Storytime Room is open every Tuesday from 9 a.m. to noon, including school breaks and summer vacation.  Now is the time to “grab” your little ones and come to the Storytime Room in Georgetown where fun abounds with a wide range of books, toys, games, and puzzles. Everyone is welcome!

The Namesake to be shown

(Cazenovia) The Namesake, a provocative look at the two sides of immigration, will be shown in the Cazenovia Public Library Community Room on Wednesday, March 19 at 1:00 and 6:30 pm.  A discussion of the movie and the book by Jhumpa Lahiri will follow on Wednesday, March 26 at 7:00 pm.

The Namesake begins in the late 1970’s when an aspiring engineer and his new wife move to New York from Calcutta.  Life in America is a difficult adjustment for the couple, but even more difficult is the struggle of their children—son Gogol and daughter Sonia—to reconcile their parents’ traditional culture with their own distinctly American outlook. But even when tragedy strikes, The Namesake reminds us of the strength of family ties and effortlessly persuades us to care. (Amazon.com)

This film runs for two hours and is rated PG-13.   As always, admission and popcorn are free.
