SANTA FE, NM – Santa Fe Community College’s Library in partnership with Santa Fe Children’s Museum and SFCC’s Kids Campus to present Storytime for children from 1 to 3 p.m. Wednesday, September 21 in the SFCC Library, 6401 Richards Ave. During this event, which is concurrent with the SFCC Open House, the public is welcome to drop in anytime. Children will be able to take home complimentary STEAM kits.
SFCC Library Director Valerie Nye said, “We’re excited about this event. We’re currently working on future partnerships with the Children’s Museum and Kids Campus to provide programs, science kits and pop-up exhibits in our community.”
“We are excited to offer more opportunities for student parents at SFCC to participate in family-friendly activities and use great spaces like the library family study room as they are working toward degrees and certificates at the college,” Director of the SFCC Early Childhood of Excellence Catron Allred added. “This event is the perfect launch for a wonderful partnership with the SFCC Library, Santa Fe Children’s Museum and Kids Campus.”
SFCC’s Kids Campus is a five-star nationally accredited program through the National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC), the highest level of accreditation. Kids Campus serves children two months to five years old in a full-time program.
The Storytime event will give the community an opportunity to see SFCC Library’s new family study room, which opened this fall semester. The room has a space for children with toys, books, and special-sized furniture. The room has three computer stations and room for SFCC students working on laptops. It is open during SFCC library hours. It is available to current students when they have their children with them. The library’s restroom adjacent to the study room has been updated and is family-friendly with a changing station.
SFCC is one of seven colleges to participate in Generation Hope’s FamilyU technical assistance program. Through FamilyU, Generation Hope partners with colleges and universities across the country to increase the number of parenting students who complete their program studies and graduate.
