    A wonderful program centered around picture books that enhances visual learning will be offered on October 19th in the Mill Village library.  Children are guided through the picture books by questioning and paraphrasing to find their unique understanding of the story.  Picture books allow the reader to make her/his own meaning, there are no correct or wrong answers.  Writing and/or drawing projects can be extensions of these visual learning thinking strategies.

    Kitty Harrington and Ann Joslin will be the presenters for this program.  Kitty was a children’s librarian at the Erie County Public Library and continues to present literacy programs throughout Erie County.  Ann was a manager at the Erie County Library, an elementary school teacher and an adjunct instructor at Gannon and Clarion University.
