Ocean County Library to Host Go Figure! traveling exhibit

Toms River -- Storybook characters present enjoyable, meaningful, interactive math experiences to children and adults in Go Figure! - a national traveling exhibit that begins a six week visit at the Toms River Branch of the Ocean County Library on March 8th, 2001. The Opening Reception of Go Figure! will be held Sunday March 18th @ 2 pm.

The library is sponsoring scheduled group visits for nursery school through grade two children, as well as other events for the public in conjunction with the exhibit. Some of these include Math Tale Mondays (storytimes followed by exhibit play), a workshop sponsored by the NJ Mathematics Coalition to inform parents about our new state standards in math, science, & technology, and fu internet programs for elementary age students with a 'hidden' focus on math.

Go Figure! transforms charming children's book into a kid-sized world where children and adults can have fun exploring math surrounded by familiar characters such as Arthur the Aardvark and the Three Bears. Each of the five colorful large-scale book elements in the exhibit includes a math related activity such as measuring, weighing, or sorting, along with labels to guide parents. Featured books are Arthur's Pet Business, The Doorbell Rang, The Quilt, Frog and Toad Are Friends: A lost Button, and Goldilocks and the Three Bears.

Please feel free to contact the Children's Department for more information or to schedule a group visit. Call (732) 349-6200 ext. 842.
