Every Child Ready to Read Family Workshops is a program that involves young children (ages birth to 6) and their parents/caregivers in learning the early literacy skills that help to prepare children for reading success in school.

During the three weekly shared story times, different early literacy skills will be highlighted during a 45-minute story time. Parents will

· Have a chance to practice the skills with their child.

· Take home a book to keep and read with their child.

· Learn fun interactive activities and practical tips to use at home.

· Hear about what schools expect from children entering kindergarten.

By the end of the three-week session, each family will have received great books, a book bag, other story time materials, and great information to help prepare their children for school!

 

Beyond the Book Book Discussion

Beyond the Book Book Discussion

Join us for a discussion of Jan Karon's delightful At Home in Mitford at 10 a.m. on Saturday, April 11th.

"It's easy to feel at home in Mitford. In these high, green hills, the air is pure, the village is charming, and the people are generally lovable. Yet, Father Tim, the bachelor rector, wants something more. Enter a dog the size of a sofa who moves in and won't go away. Add an attractive neighbor who begins wearing a path through the hedge. Now, stir in a lovable but unloved boy, a mystifying jewel theft, and a secret that's sixty years old. Suddenly, Father Tim gets more than he bargained for. And readers get a rich comedy about ordinary people and their ordinary lives."

You can pick up a copy of the book behind the counter at Star Branch Library.
