This evening of early literacy fun is offered as part of the Pennsylvania Library Association’s statewide initiative, PA Forward, to demonstrate that libraries can push Pennsylvania to achieve one of the highest literacy rates in the country, a better trained and more skilled workforce, and a growing tax base, economy, and population.
“1000 Books Before Kindergarten” is a free program that encourages reading to newborns, infants and toddlers with the goal to have read 1,000 books before the little one enters kindergarten. At the March 30 event, all are invited to meet Jackie Urbanovic and learn simple ways to help strengthen their child’s language skills and build vocabulary by reading aloud. A book signing will follow the program.
