Inglenook Library Prime Time Family Reading Time program kicks off March 9
BIRMINGHAM, Ala. –
As a parent, Inglenook Library Branch Manager Karnecia Williams knows how reading to your kids while they’re young improves their ability to do well in school. On Thursday, March 9, 2017, from 6-7:30 p.m., Inglenook Library kicks off a new program designed to assist parents in emphasizing the importance of reading.
PRIME TIME Family Reading Time is a special six-week program consisting of storytelling, reading, and discussion for parents and children ages 6 to 10. PRIME TIME not only helps improve reading skills, but also helps families learn how to talk about books in ways that will help children in school and even life, Williams said.
“As a parent, I know how important reading to your kids at a young age is when it comes to their educational development,” Williams said. “Our hope is that parents who attend this program will take advantage of the free resources and books available not only at Inglenook Library but throughout the Birmingham Public Library system.”
The program is free but registration is required. Registration is open through the Thursday March 16 session on the BPL website, www.bplonline.org
, or by calling Inglenook at 205-849.8739. For more information, email Williams at firstname.lastname@example.org
