The Library will host its first “Every Child Ready to Read” program. Parents and children are invited to the workshop, which will offer advice on how parents can incorporate reading into their birth through preschool-aged child’s life through several hands-on activities.

The Every Child Ready to Read program is a set of curriculum and materials designed to inspire parents and teachers to invest in early childhood literacy, using libraries as a venue to share this information.
The program focuses on encouraging parents to help develop their children’s reading skills through several different methods including a presentation, hands on activities, and handouts for this workshop. Parents will be provided the necessary tools to introduce early literacy to their child. Join Ms. Alyssa in the community room for an hour on January 24th at 6 p.m.  RSVP at marlborolibrary.org to let us know you are coming, walk-ins welcome!

“The fire of literacy is created by the emotional sparks between a child, a book and the person reading. It isn’t achieved by the book alone, or by the child alone, or by the adult who’s reading aloud — it’s the relationship winding between all three, bringing them together in easy harmony,” -Mem Fox
