>We received a wonderful update from Emily Klonicki, the Children’s Librarian at the Rockford Public Library in Rockford, Illinois. They have received an overwhelmingly positive response since they first introduced Souns on September 7, 2010.
“I just wanted to send an update to you on the great success of SOUNS at Rockford Public Library. Since starting our SOUNS program in September, our numbers have grown steadily and parents are very excited about the program. Last week we had around 36 participants—that’s almost 20 babies! It’s great! SOUNS has also given us a great leg-up on our baby story hour. The weekly story hour is too popular bringing an average of 50 people per week (you can imagine how crazy that gets!) so we are going to offer another baby story hour each week starting in November. I just wanted to drop a note to say how much I love to use the program, how easy it is, and how much the babies are really getting it! It’s amazing to watch. Next I plan to implement some of the SOUNS approach into preschool programming. Thanks again!”
Thank you, Emily!
