The Sinclairville Free Library invites youth ages 8 and up to participate in the library’s journaling program to record their stories as part of this year’s “Imagine Your Story” summer reading program.
This journaling program will begin with a virtual meeting on the Zoom platform on Monday, August 17th at 6:30 PM and will be led by Grace and Barbara Sam, owners of BarbaraGrace Journals (barbaragracellc.com).
Please register in advance by calling 962-5885 or by email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Children are asked to pick up a journaling kit at the library in advance of the first meeting, where they will be given instructions, inspiration and tips to begin their journaling expedition. This program is designed to encourage young people to write their stories, both the ones they imagine as well as the stories of their lives during these challenging times.
The first journal kit includes a hand-made journal repurposed from hardcover children’s books donated by BarbaraGrace Journals along with an assortment of writing tools.
This program is made possible through a Summer Reading Program Mini-Grant through the Chautauqua-Cattaraugus Library System and the donated services and journals of Grace and Barbara Sam.
