RAISING A READER WITH HELP FROM YOUR LOCAL PUBLIC LIBRARY:
Mid-Hudson Libraries Start New Storytime Programs
Did you know that pre-school children need certain skills in order to enter kindergarten fully ready to learn?
Research has shown that very young children who have positive early learning experiences before they enter kindergarten perform better in school. Your local public library can help your child to acquire important early literacy skills through the Raising A Reader storytime program that offers fun and interactive stories, songs, crafts and learning activities. Included in the program is a separate parent/caregiver workshop session focusing on simple activities that will enhance their childís language skills. Program is free of charge, includes a free book for each familyís home library and takes place in a friendly, welcoming setting: your local public library.
