Do you know how it’s done? Learn to line dance this Saturday, July 14, at 12:30 p.m. at our July “How It’s Done” workshop with dance instructor Mary Coney.

We have a fun program scheduled for this Tuesday, July 17, at 2 p,m. The Cotten- Dixon Puppet Show will be at the library to entertain all ages with a great puppet show. Come out and support these great young local players – you’ll be amazed at their talent. This program is sponsored by Art and Larry Johnson, in memory of Jeannett Brantley, and by Planters EMC.

At 4 p.m. on Tuesday, July 17, we’ll have our special summer Storytime, where we’ll be sharing musical tales and playing a game of “Name That Instrument” with the kids.

On Wednesday, July 18, at 1 p.m. we’ll have a cool project for the teens and older kids – we’ll be showing them how to make maracas. These cool musical instruments will let them make music on their own, and they’re simple to make once you know how.

The Jenkins County Memorial Library Board will be on Wednesday, July 18, at 10:30 a.m. The Screven-Jenkins Regional Library Board will meet on Thursday, July 26, at 4 p.m. in the Jenkins County Memorial Library.

New at the library – “Talk to Me, Baby! How You Can Support Young Children’s Language Development” by Betty Lynn Segal Bardige. It’s well-known that speaking to your baby is critical in helping them develop their language skills, but what is less well-known is that how you talk to them is also highly important. Child development researcher Betty Bardige shares information about the six stages of language acquisition starting with baby babble and progressing to kindergarten literacy skills. Includes new research and a toolbox of downloadable resources to help put strategies into practice.

Well, that’s all for now – see you at the library!
