One-day Kids Bazaar will offer treasures for children Sept. 21


September 13, 1996|By Lourdes Sullivan | Lourdes Sullivan,SPECIAL TO THE SUN

THE PERENNIALLY popular Kids Bazaar will open for one day, at 9 a.m. Sept. 21, at the Forest Ridge School Recreation Center.

This bazaar -- featuring treasures now outgrown, unsuitable or overlooked -- offers hundreds of children's items for sale. Come to buy or sell items for infants, games, sports equipment, toys and other childhood necessities.

This flea market/yard sale is sponsored by the Howard County Department of Recreation and Parks.

An exhibitor's fee of $10 buys a 9-by-15-foot space. Sellers should bring items convertible into cash (your first-grader's baby carriage, for example) and a chair to sit on, some form of portable shade, grocery bags for the hordes who will descend and lots of small change.

Buyers should bring cash and grocery bags. Be sure to give any junior family members their allowances before getting to the bazaar. It's amazing how far $5 will go there.

Forest Ridge Elementary is on Gorman Road between U.S. 1 and Stephens Road. For more details or to reserve a space, call Terri Gossage at (410) 313-4700.

Signed stories

The Savage Branch of the Howard County Library announces Signed Storytime, a story session presented in sign language by Kathy Pongor.

This is a drop-in program. There is no need to register. Just show up 7 p.m. Monday. My nieces, who've attended previous signed story times, inform me that Pongor puts on a wonderful presentation.

For details and directions, call Lynn Starman at the Savage branch at 880-5978.

Library skills

The Savage Library knows how hard it is to keep up with all the new technologies and information sources.

The library has had two different computerized catalogs; now it has magazines on line, access to the Internet, videos, filmstrips, microfilm and other more arcane sources.

It's a perplexing array.

But not to worry.

The Savage staff presents "No More Homework Hassles," a program for elementary school students and their parents, at 7 p.m. Sept. 23.

The librarians will show patrons how to use library sources efficiently, teach search strategies and generally help take the dullness out of homework.

Registration is open. Information or to register: 313-5978.
