It’s all about the books!

Studies show that exposure to reading at an early age helps language and cognition skills develop at a more advanced rate.

Harney District Hospital (HDH) participates in the nationwide Reach Out & Read program, a nonprofit organization that gives young children a foundation for success by incorporating books into pediatric care and encouraging families to read aloud together.

March and April have been chock-full of reading-related news at HDH!

Spring Roundup and Read & Romp

The Spring Roundup for Read & Romp was held Friday, April 1, at The Book Parlor in Burns. Participants dressed up in Western wear and listened to Western-themed books read aloud by community volunteers.

The Read & Romp was held Saturday, April 16, and featured a new element this year – a puppet show!

What is a Little Free Library? Well, it’s a “take a book, return a book” gathering place where neighbors share their favorite stories. In its basic form, Little Free Library is a box full of books where anyone may stop by and pick up one (or two) and bring back another book to share.
Come take a look at our new addition, a part of Harney County Library’s Little Free Library Project, and beautifully constructed by students at Monroe School. Check out www.littlefreelibrary.org to find out more about this nationwide project.
