Fetters to lead story time at library

Posted: Friday, March 23, 2012

Huntington Mayor Brooks Fetters will lead a special story time session at 6:30 p.m. on Thursday, March 29 at the Huntington City-Township Public Library, 255 W. Park Drive, as part of  the state-wide celebration of March as Disability Awareness Month. Mayor Fetters will read several books celebrating this year’s theme:  “Celebrate Community.”

Following story time with Mayor Fetters, children will have the opportunity to enjoy additional stories and take turns at several activity stations designed to teach understanding of those with disabilities.  The fun will include learning simple sign language, riding/propelling a wheelchair, reading Braille, coloring and more.

This event is geared towards children ages 4 and up and is free to everyone. No registration is required. For more information on this event, contact the children’s department at the Huntington City-Township Public Library at (260) 356-2900. The library has partnered with Pathfinder Services for this event.

Throughout the month of March, various organizations like Pathfinder Services have participated in similar activities nationwide. Locally, Pathfinder Services has held presentations at the Roanoke Public Library and at Pathfinder Kids Kampus. This year the state of Indiana’s theme of “Celebrating Community” focuses on igniting community spirit and getting involved. Disability Awareness Month is a time to educate the community and to recognize that people with disabilities should be treated like everyone else.
