Parents, caregivers and teachers can attend a day of free workshops at the Frisco Public Library Saturday to discover how to incorporate early childhood learning in everything “from story time to nap time,” a press release said.
A total of six workshops for the “Grow a Reader: Early Literacy Day 2016” will discuss the importance of play, conversation and discipline in developing literacy and oral skills and preparing young children for school. The event will take place at the library between 9:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m.
According to a July press release promoting the event, speakers will include local librarians as well as experts from around the country.
“We are thrilled that so many talented early learning professionals are coming to share their expertise,” Bonnie Barber, an Early Literacy Librarian of Baltimore Public Library said in the release. “It will be a richly rewarding day for all who attend and benefit the children they care for.”
Frisco Public Library is active in promoting early childhood literacy. In May, the library finished a major second floor renovation revealing its new Ready to Read Railroad, an interactive area designed to help parents and caregivers promote literacy in children up to five years old.
