Studies show that early reading for children helps develop better reasoning skills, advanced critical thinking skills, and overall has a higher impact on student achievement. When was the last time you sat down and read with your family? Between professional work, house work, cooking dinner, and all the other chores a parent needs to do to keep the family running, it can be hard to stop and sit down with a good book. Enter the Prime Time Family Reading Time Program!
For six weeks in February the Interlachen Public Library will host Prime Time which is designed to help families with children aged 6 to 10 stop and get in some time with their family. These free programs include a nutritious meal, reading time, book discussions, door prizes, and free books. For those families that have siblings below 6, child care is available.
This amazing program is free and open to the public to enjoy an evening with their family without having to worry about cooking dinner. It’s been a smash hit in previous years, but as for right now this is the last year scheduled and may be your last chance to join in the fun. Space is very limited, so call or stop by Interlachen Library as soon as you can…the program is starting soon!
