Auburn Manor Apartments Resident Corner

Ongoing Activities

Weekly Story Time by PG County Public Library:

Each Wednesday from 12:30 – 1:45 pm, the Prince George's County Memorial Library offers a free story time for toddlers and preschoolers in the Auburn Manor Community Center. Each week 3-7 resident children attend (an average of 5) and 2-3 resident parents help out. Storytime encourages a love for reading and develops skills that get children ready for kindergarten. Gia Schwartz, Program Director, leads children in reading books, singing songs, reciting rhymes, using rhythm instruments, and learning finger plays. This program started in early July. (During the summer older children participate.) Two of the parents who had been bringing children have recently found work and can't attend anymore, but a new parent has recently joined after seeing the program advertised on the library website. Most of the families also check-out and return books each week.

Previous Events

Resident Appreciation Day:

In August Carlos, Eunice, Timekia, and staff hosted another successful Resident Appreciation Day. About 70 residents attended this fun event. Leezo the Clown came with a moon bounce, and made balloon toys for the kids – always a favorite. The kids also loved the moon bounce which got constant use, and enjoyed popcorn and snow-cones. Hot dogs, chips, and drinks were also served. There was music, and residents competed in a dance contest. Several residents received gifts as a result of excelling in the contest.

Music and Literature 3 day Camp:

In August for 8-12 year olds, hosted by PG County Memorial Library. (The Program Director reports:) We had 12 formal registrations for “Making Music and Meeting Neighbors.” Two students were from Auburn Manor. On the third day, three more from Auburn Manor joined in making a total of five students from our community. This program is an extension of the local library’s program, being held at Auburn Manor because the library is under renovation. “Ode to Joy” by Beethoven was the children’s favorite piece that they learned on the harmonica.

Bike Safety Program:

On Wedesday August 10th, the Prince George's County Memorial Library System hosted a Bike Safety Program at Auburn Manor. A representative from College Park Bicycle came out to talk about bike safety and helped fit 15 children with new bicycle helmets purchased by the Friends of the New Carrollton Library. Also, the children were able to decorate their helmets and bikes with stickers and spoke beads.
