Read-Ercise w/ Toddlers

ENCORE PRESENTATION! Since this story time at 10:30am is so popular, Mr. Jason will be doing a second encore story time immediately after the first one. This way, the crowd won't be so big. So feel free to come to the 10:30am or the 11:30am story time for your toddlers!

In this Toddler story time, kids act out the books as they are being read, making them feel part of the story!  Stories, songs, fingerplays, rhymes, and toys help toddlers learn and love to read!

Tuesdays at 11:30am. Registration is NOT required.

(Children learn best through role modeling. Caregivers are asked to be great role models and be attentive and engaged in the story time. Side conversations can take place during free play. Thanks!)

Radnor Library presents an afternoon with Claudia West as our 19th Annual Chanticleer Lecture.

Our planet is rapidly losing its foundation of life—the very plants that sustain us and most other creatures on earth. We know planting more na­tive plants in our gardens is an important part of the solution. However, many native plant gardens that focus on ecological benefits often suffer for aesthetic challenges and fail to inspire. Great plant­ing design is an essential part of the solution. Join us as we dig deeper into inspiring design principles derived from wild plant communities that resonate deeply within us and trigger stunning emotional re­sponses. We will analyze archetypal landscapes and translate their principles into smaller garden spac­es to help you create the native plant oasis of your dreams that will blow you away with stunning beau­ty!

Claudia West is a leading voice in the emerging field of ecological planting design and is the co-author of the critically acclaimed book, Planting in a Post-Wild World

This lecture is free and open to the public, and will be held in the Radnorshire Room at Radnor Township Building, 301 Iven Avenue, Wayne, PA 19087.
