Visiting local libraries, this program encourages community interaction, the building and maintenance of literacy skills and independent use of a library.
Participants greet librarians when they arrive. Some independently search for specific items or topics of interest, while others are assisted to find a selection of appropriate books to choose from.
Staff members will read books to participants, or encourage them to read themselves and as a group, selections are discussed and ideas and experiences shared from books read.
Participants are given the opportunity to choose books they wish to borrow to promote further learning and independence.
No fee for participants of OC Connections programs. For those people who are not currently participants of OC Connections and wish to enquire about our services please enquire using the button top left or calling (03) 9569 0603 between 8.30am - 5pm Mon-Fri.
