Something new for kids from birth to 5 years of age...Our library will be joining with dozens of libraries around the state to begin a new initiative. Experts agree that the most important thing you can do to prepare your children to read is to read to them every day. Research proves that kids need to hear 1000 books before they learn to read independently...this will increase their vocabulary and their listening and narrative skills. 1000 books? How can it be done? It's not as hard as you think...we'll show you how. The program will be kicking off in October...be watching for more details as we enter the fall season!
