Children's Literacy Project
We're partnering with the Mead Library to promote early childhood reading!!
1000 Books Before Kindergarten is a program developed by Mead Library staff to encourage parents and other family members to read to their little ones!! Our club became the official sponsor of this program in fall 2013 by our donation of $500. These funds are used to purchase 'rewards' to be given to each child as they reach milestones in their reading!
April... the Month of the Young Child!
Spring 2015: Thursdays in April (the Month of the Young Child!) are in the planning stages! Optimist members will read stories and supervise a specially-chosen craft project that coincides with the books we read!
