Ready to Read Festival

Ready to Read Festival

Help your child get ready to read. The fourth annual Ready to Read Festival at the Clermont County Public Library is April 8.

The whole family can take a walk around the pretend neighborhood and enjoy fun activities featuring reading, talking, writing, playing and singing.

Sign up for the 1000 Books Before Kindergarten program. Learn how children who are read to regularly are better prepared to learn how to read by the time they enter kindergarten. The library has a packet of information for parents to get their children started.

Award-winning musician Demi Mays will perform songs that capture and celebrate the day-to-day life of a child and the lessons parents teach to help them grow and learn.

Enjoy a storytime, have your face painted and earn a prize for visiting every station.

The festival is geared toward children age 0-6 and their families, but everyone is welcome. It is 10 a.m. to noon Saturday, April 8, at the Union Township Branch Library, 4450 Glen Este-Withamsville Road.

Mark your calendar. Call the Union Township Library at 528-1744 for more information or visit clermontlibrary.org. What will you discover?
