Story time is very popular at the Columbine Library in Littleton. Sheryl Ditton takes time out of her busy schedule to do 10 sessions a week for children with the help of her staff. Ditton also has her own stories on Friday mornings at her ranch-style home at 7676 South Continental Divide Road.
She loves reading stories to children at her home because it’s more comfortable and the neighborhood association was interested. According to the Denver Post, the neighborhood wants her to read to their children as well, “It was just something to do as a service to people who live around here and make it easy for them to go,” said Gina Hawk, recreation and aquatics supervisor for the Ken-Caryl Ranch Master Association.
The Littleton public library will continue to have their weekly book readings for the kids, but they are always welcome to Ditton’s home. It is great to get the young ones out of the house even if it is only for an hour. They have time to socialize and learn at the same time!
