Attention Lake Worth parents: The "1,000 Books Before Kindergarten" training program is tomorrow (Friday, 4/22)

A press release from the Lake Worth Library:    

    Families are invited to join the 1,000 Books Before Kindergarten program. The program encourages parents to regularly read aloud to their children. By reading just one book a night, families can reach the 1,000-book goal in three years and provide their children essential early literacy skills.
     Reading to children from an early age can help close the vocabulary gap and prepare children to enter kindergarten with the skills they need to succeed. Most importantly, sharing books with children promotes a lifelong love of books and reading.
     The Lake Worth Library will be holding the Parent Training Workshop on Friday, April 22 at 11:00 at the Lake Worth City Hall Annex meeting room, 414 Lake Avenue.
     The 1,000 Books Before Kindergarten program is available to all families with children between the ages of birth and five years. 
     For more information call the library at 561-533-7354. This program is free of charge.
