Wednesday, 11/13 at 3:00 pm: Alzheimer’s Association: Effective Communication Strategies

The Alzheimer’s Association is coming back to the Library on November 13th at 3 PM for a program on Effective Communication Strategies.

Communication is more than just talking and listening – it’s also about sending and receiving messages through attitude, tone of voice, facial expressions and body language. As people with Alzheimer’s disease and other dementia’s progress in their journey and the ability to use words is lost, families need new ways to connect. Join us to explore how communication takes place when someone has Alzheimer’s, learn to decode the verbal and behavioral messages delivered by someone with dementia, and identify strategies to help you connect and communicate at each stage of the disease.

Ongoing: 1000 Books Before Kindergarten

We’re joining the National “1000 Books Before Kindergarten” Campaign. It’s fun, free, and helps to build a lifelong love of books. If you read just 1 book a day to your child for 3 years, that equals 1,095 books! You can count the same book multiple times, count books read in storytime, at daycare…anywhere! This program also pairs with Project Read. You can participate in both programs with one easy calendar! Pick up a new calendar every month. Visit the library anytime to register & learn more! Join the WPL “Road to Reading” with milestone prizes along the way!

Ongoing: Project Read

Wyoming County families are invited to participate in this reading program that begins in infancy and continues through elementary school. Read together for 15 minutes a day for at least 20 days a month. Mark each day you have read together on the Project Read Calendar, (available at all Wyoming County libraries) return your completed calendar to the library each month and choose a free paperback or board book for your home library!

Ongoing: We Read Free

Children’s and teens print items are now fine free!

We are very excited to implement this positive change for our patrons, especially our younger ones! We encourage parents and caregivers to teach children that a public library is a community resource shared by everyone and that returning materials on time is all about sharing responsibly! This does not apply to DVDs, Blu-Rays, audiobooks, or material not owned by Warsaw.

Books not returned 6 weeks after the due date will become lost and you will be responsible for the payment of the material, unless it is returned. You may still renew material.
