Nashville Libraries: Special Story Times!

10 am Saturday Donna Reagan will read stories for all in
Centennial Park near the plane and the train.

Announcement from Librarian Donna Reagan: 
Some of you may already know that the Nashville Public Library 
has special needs story time one Saturday a month at Green Hills 
with Miss Terri. 
We have just begun doing special needs story time at two other locations: 
Madison and Bellevue. 
Miss Lin at Madison and I have the one here at Bellevue. 
All abilities are welcome. 
We meet from 10:30 to 11:00 for the program portion and 
leave the room open to parents and kids for another half hour or so. 
Bellevue and Madison dates:
October 6, November 3 and December 1. 
Green Hills: 
October 20, November 17, and December 15. 
The programs follow similar patterns but the content will be slightly different. 
For instance, our stories will not be the same (unless kids ask for them) 
and songs may be a bit different (and, of course, we take requests!). 
There is little that can happen during a story time 
that I haven't experienced in my 25+ years as a children's library programmer
and, of course, as the mother of two children (one neuro-typical daughter and a hyper-active son with autism).
 I also have considerable experience with people of all ages who have developmental challenges both physically and mentally. 
I am always open to suggestions! Please help us get the word out and do, 
of course, come if you can at all. Would love to see you!
