GRANGEVILLE — Children registering for kindergarten at Grangeville Elementary Middle School will receive a free book as part of the Grangeville Centennial Library’s “Get a Jump Start on Reading @ Your Library” program.
The Grangeville Centennial Library will be hosting an informational display at kindergarten registration. Children who register for school will receive a free book, “Look Out Kindergarten, Here I Come!” by Nancy Carlson. Parents will get a folder of early literacy information and activities along with library card applications.
“We want children entering school to have early literacy experiences and access to books,” said assistant librarian Debbie Urquhart. “Public libraries have the tools parents need to give their child a jump start on reading - books, great early learning programs and other fun learning materials. We have story hour weekly on Wednesdays at 1 p.m. and look for upcoming Summer Reading program information!”
The program is sponsored by the Grangeville Centennial Library and Read to Me, a service of the Idaho Commission for Libraries, in part through a grant from the U.S Institute of Museum and Library Services.
