Next Steps Reading Club

leafNext Steps Reading Club    Starting on the right path to reading!  September 22-November 17, 2014  For children birth to 5 years old.  Registration required and space is limited.  This autumn, help your little one FALL into reading by joining our early literacy reading program!  Our program is a fun, non-competitive way to encourage families with small children to read together.  Each child will get a bag containing a reading log, and a fall-themed stamp.  For every book read, add a stamp to the log.  For every 5 books you read, your child will receive a fall themed-cutout with his or her name on it to hang in the Picture Book Room.  Help us decorate for fall by reading!   Call 781-769-0200 ext 225 or email norchild@minlib.net for details and to register! Registration starts September 2.
