Wednesday, April 16, the Carver Memorial Library will offer new story times the first and third Wednesday of each month featuring The Very Ready Reading Program. A child's earliest years set the foundation for all learning to come, and reading to children from birth is the key to developing skills that indicate later success in learning to read. This program is built with the tools to prepare the youngest learners with fun stories, songs, and activities that are designed just for them. For information on the times, call 548-2303.
All library programs are free and open to the public.

Feel free to pass this on to interested people.
