Grandparents are Special to Me!
July 11, 2005
On a warm summer afternoon, Youth Services librarians Gudrun Premier and Jan Watkins offered Grandparents are Special to Me! for children ages 3-7 and their grandparents. We shared stories that celebrate the special relationship between grandparents and grandchildren, played games, and enjoyed songs and fingerplays relating to grandparents. Together, the children and their grandparents designed a picture card to hold a keepsake family photo taken by Youth Services staff during the program. Participants also gathered on the patio to plant cups of flowers to take home. One grandmother exclaimed that she had not enjoyed anything so much in a long time! The children's smiles told us that they had a good time, too. Take a look below, and then view more photos in our online memory book!
