Members of the Alphabits class of 2015.

If you’ve ever driven by the library on a Wednesday or Thursday morning and wondered why the parking lot was full, the success of Steve Fowler’s “Alphabits” program should explain it.  Fowler, popularly known as “Mr. Steve,” has a full house for this popular program aimed at preschool-aged children, so much so that he offered five sessions a week with a total of eighty children participating.

The program ran for twenty-six weeks (minus snow days) starting in September, and each week a different letter of the alphabet was showcased.  Renee Sekerak, whose 3-year-old son, William, attends the program, explained the popularity.  “The kids are at an age that they’re learning letters anyway, and Mr. Steve does a great job incorporating the letters and crafts and making it exciting for the kids.”

The last week of April was graduation week for the attendees.  Mr. Steve had small mortarboard caps ready and handed out nametags to participants. He also had books and crafts ready as well as an activity called “Action ABC’s,” where each letter is acted out.
