Amid the cold South Dakota weather, what better way to warm up than with a good book through the 2017 Read To Me Library Luau program at the Grant County Public Library.
The annual program is geared for children ages birth to six years of age. “Parents are encouraged to read to their children starting at birth,” stated library director Jody Carlson. “The more words a child hears the larger the child’s vocabulary will become. The larger the child’s vocabulary, the more likely they will be a proficient reading which will help them in many ways throughout their life.”
The program will begin Monday, January 9, and conclude Thursday, February 23. Participating children will also be recognized on a display at the library.
“Children will receive a reading log at sign up,” explained Carlson. “Completed reading logs can be returned to the library and redeemed for prizes and incentives throughout the six-week program.”
The program will conclude with a Luau Party for the children and parents on Thursday, February 23, beginning at 5:30 p.m.
Registration is required for both the program and the finale party. For more information, please call the library at 605-432-6543.
