Shreve Memorial Library to present Every Child Ready to Read workshops

Every Child Ready to Read
Come learn how to get your child ready to read during our upcoming workshops at the library! These events will help you learn how to engage your child with simple daily activities to ensure they are developing early literacy skills. The first workshops will begin in January and continue throughout the year.

Shreve Memorial Library is partnering with the Rotary Club of Southwest Shreveport for this series of programs to encourage early literacy in our communities. Parents of children from birth to 5 years of age are invited to attend these meetings and see a demonstration of ways to help get your child ready to read.

At each event, a book will be given to each family thanks to the Rotary Club of Southwest Shreveport.

Learning to read begins before children start school. From the time they are infants, children learn language and other important pre-reading skills. Developing these early literacy skills makes it easier for children to read once they begin school.

We will also be presenting Every Child Ready to Read workshops at the Power of Play (POP) Children's Museum at the Sci-Port Discovery Center. These presentations will be included with your admission to the Children's Museum on the second Saturday of the month from Saturday, March 11 to Saturday August 12.
