Preparing Preschoolers for Reading!

Who doesn’t want to give their kids a head start? 

IFPL is happy to present another series of Every Child Ready to Read. 
This free special emergent literacy program is designed to teach you and your child the skills they need before learning to read. The fun ECRTR story time workshops include songs, puppets, and free materials.

Choose between two workshops:
Mondays at 9:00 am OR Mondays at 10:30 am 
on September 15, 22, 29 and October 6, 2014.
 Classes are limited to families with a 4 or 5 year-old.
 Signing up is required and participants must commit to attend all four workshops.
