This mini-grant project, led by residents Ami Melendez of Romulus and Cady Fontana of Ovid staredin January 2015. The Romulus Presbyterian Church donated the space to hold reading story time sessions for preschool children. Healthy snacks, physical activity and crafts are included at the weekly sessions. Local residents Sarah Haws, Carrie Norton, Diane Hinman, and Erich Minges also helped move the project forward involving young families in reading and proving social networking opportunities for parents in Romulus, where no such opportunity currently exists.
The project is now funded by the Working on Words (WOW) grant and sponsored by the Edith B. Ford Memorial Library. Storytime is from 10:30 to 11:30 on Tuesdays in the Romulus Reading Room at the Presbyterian Church, 5614 Route 96, Romulus. All toddlers are welcome!
