CART - Children & Adults Reading Together

C.A.R.T. is back! This exciting program is designed to introduce your pre-school child to the wonderful world of books. Through stories, games and fun activities, children will learn about letters and words and how they go together to form stories. Parents or caregivers will participate with their child and learn new ways to introduce reading into all aspects of everyday life.

C.A.R.T. is open to children ages 3-5 yrs with their parent or caregiver and begins the week of October 6. The program is FREE but it does require an 8 week commitment. Please contact your local library for details.
