Learning about Early Literacy

A New Group for Parents and Other Adults

Beginning Tuesday, May 21, 2013, the Bellevue Library Children's Room will be starting a monthly meeting group for parents and other adults who spend time with children that are beginning to interact with books and literacy. If you have an interest in helping your child or other children you know learn to read, or if you find reading picture books to be a fun experience, this is definitely a group you will want to check out. The first meeting will be at 7:30 p.m. on the second floor and will focus on understanding the importance of getting a child to read early in life.
