SCIA Starting Children’s Story Time Program

SURRY — The Surry Community Improvement Association (SCIA) hopes to appeal to children and families when it launches “Second Saturday Story Time” on April 11.

SCIA member Sandy Smallidge said the program will offer children ages 3 to 5 a chance to hear adults read stories once a month.

 “All of our activities are geared to adults,” Smallidge said. “We want to expand our reach to younger people and their families.”

A step in that direction will take place on April 11 at the Surry Elementary School library. An adult volunteer will be on hand to read to young children from 10 to 10:30 a.m. The program will continue on the second Saturday of each month.

Children who come to hear stories must be accompanied by an adult, and Smallidge said the SCIA encourages any area family with young children to attend the story time events.

Anyone interested in volunteering to be a reader should call Smallidge at 667-8494.
