Babies Bloom at the Lester Public Library
Plant the seed to your baby’s success! Believe it or not, learning to read begins at birth. Sharing books together strengthens your baby’s foundation for learning and creates a long-lasting relationship with their favorite teacher – you! Babies Bloom at the Lester Public Library encourages parents and caregivers to read 100 books to their child before the age of 1. Babies who participate in the program will receive a special bib and a record sheet to keep track of the books they read. After each milestone of 25 books, participants will receive a free book to add to their home library. Stop by the library’s Help Desk to register for the program.
Plant the seed to your child’s success! Believe it or not, learning to read begins before kindergarten. Sharing books together strengthens your child’s foundation for learning and creates a long lasting relationship with their favorite teacher-YOU! Register for the program at the Help Desk any time before your child enters 5-year-old kindergarten and receive a record sheet to keep track of the books you read. For every 100 books read you will receive a free book for your home library.
