I love our amazing Seattle-area library systems and am a proud, card carrying patron of the King County Library System, the Seattle Public Library System and the Sno-Isle Library System. I never take for granted that I live in a country where I have access to oodles of books, DVD’s and music for free and that isn’t the case for everyone across the globe. How truly lucky we are!
Last fall, I wrote about a King County Library Book Sale and the importance of reading to your baby. I included an article detailing the benefits of reading to your pee wee and ideas for making ready fun with the under two crowd. And here’s an opportunity to learn even more from local experts! Maren Ostergard, the Early Literacy and Outreach Librarian for the King County Library System and CeKeithia Pugh, the Early Literacy Program Manager at The Seattle Public Library, will be presenting an early literacy workshop on Wednesday, February 15th at 7pm in conjunction with PEPS and the Stroum Jewish Community Center.
In this interactive workshop you will:
• Learn techniques for reading aloud to your child
• Discover the five simple practices and six early literacy skills that help children get ready to read
• Discover new books and resources to support your storytelling
• Learn about library services and materials
Learn more about the event here and get your little one on the road to reading and all the wonders that come with it!
