Fun With Words For Parents and Children

Time: 10:00 am-10:45 am
Place: Keene Public Library, Youth Program Rm, Keene, NH
Price: Free
Ages: Birth-5

This Every Child Ready to Read® @ your library® workshop is for parents, grandparents, childcare providers --and their children from birth to age five. The workshop presents five important early literacy practices along with interactive activities that parents and caregivers can use to help children learn new words and their meaning.
Before children can learn to read, they must develop a range of early literacy skills. Learning these skills, which begins at birth, has a long-term impact on children's reading achievement and academic success. Children who enter school with well-developed early literacy skills have an advantage; they are ready to learn to read.
The Association for Library Service to Children (ALSC) and the Public Library Association (PLA) worked with Dr. Susan B. Neuman and Dr. Donna Celano nationally-known researchers and educators to develop the Every Child Ready to Read® @ your library® @ your library® workshops and materials.

Towel Day

Towel Day is an annual tribute to the late author Douglas Adams. On that day, fans around the universe proudly carry a towel in his honor. “There is a theory which states that if ever anybody discovers exactly what the Universe is for and why it is here, it will instantly disappear and be replaced by something even more bizarre and inexplicable. There is another theory which states that this has already happened.” – Douglas Adams
