Summer Programming Highlights

Children’s programming has been so much fun this summer! We are excited to be able to host programs in person and love seeing both new and familiar faces at the library. 

New this summer!

Patrons were able to visit the library’s Storywalk® at the Innovation Trail on the South Fayette School campus, and we were thrilled to have been able to add a second Storywalk® to the playground at Morgan Park near the ballfields.

Nature Explorer Backpacks and our STEM Education Kits made a return this summer. They are available for checkout.

Our American Girl Dolls and Sundari doll will be available for checkout soon!

Summer Program Highlights

Ms. Carrie hosted Sensory Storytime for children ages three to six years on our new patio behind the library. She also offered Monday Sensory Storytimes at our different StoryWalk® locations. Be sure to check out our StoryWalks® at Morgan Park and the Innovation Trail and check out Bridgeville Public Library’s StoryWalk® in Chartiers Park.

Ms. Nicole Seitz offered an exciting new program this summer called Caldecott Kids Camp for children entering Kindergarten- second grade in the fall. During the three-day program, children learned about an illustrator who had won a Caldecott award. By the end of the camp, the children wrote and illustrated a book of their own.

Ms. Judy worked with Ms. Karen, from Bridgeville Public Library, to offer an ocean-based STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Math) program for school-age children called Oceans of Possibilities. The program was presented at both Bridgeville Public Library and South Fayette Township Library.

This summer, Ms. Nicole Harding led a new monthly book club for children entering fourth grade and up. Reading The Lighting Thief by Rick Riordan, The Percy Jackson Book Club split the book up into three sections, with each section having an accompanying book club kit. The book club meetings were full of fun activities relating to the plot points of the story. One parent informed Ms. Nicole that the program helped her reluctant reader finish a book.

Summer programming will end mid-August and start up again mid-September. Don’t forget to check out our upcoming Events and Programs.
