Hart Interim Library

Read Play Learn

For parents of young children, volunteers, professionals, and community members

United Way of Rock River Valley and Rockford Public Library invite you to a free, one-hour training.  This training is suitable for parents of young children and all volunteers who will be sharing early literacy skills with children and families of young children (infant to pre-k).  Professionals who would like to learn more about early childhood reading readiness will also benefit from this training.  

This training provides loads of early literacy tips and participants will leave with a goody bag including a wonderful picture book perfect for sharing with children and families.  The training is based on the American Library Association's Every Child Ready to Read curriculum and supports the current United Way initiative - United for Literacy: Read to Succeed

The 60-minute training will have 45 minutes of material, ending with a 15-minute "storytime" demo. This training is interactive and there will be time for questions.

If you would like more information, please contact Brook Loomis at Rockford Public Library bloomis@rockfordpubliclibrary.org
