Did you know that the library participates in Welcome to Kindergarten events at our local schools? It’s a great way to tell parents about library programs, support early literacy, and also to form bonds with our schools. After all, we do many things within our community schools, and this is a nice way to help support their programs.
If you have a young person heading off to school this year, no doubt you’ll be going to a Welcome to Kindergarten event. At each event, you’ll learn about the school, discover all of the great things your child will be doing in the fall, and take home a wonderful bag stuffed with information, books, literacy supplies and more. You’ll also be able to talk with members of the literacy community, like librarians, the Ontario Early Years Centre and more. All of us are involved in the the Learning Partnership that helps to support schools and early literacy, to make our young people ready for school, and support those who might need some extra help to succeed.
It’s just another way libraries help to make our communities stronger.
