Children and parents residing at Belmont Place Apartments continued to attend our weekly Ready, Set, Read! program with enthusiasm. Parents, as well as our volunteer facilitators, observed tremendous growth in the children’s excitement for reading time! Lessons filled with stories, singing, and tactile activities surrounding letters, shapes and colors, certainly gave these children something to look forward to each week. Parents expressed their sadness when the program ended in April, and said they look forward to returning in the fall. This is such a great program for those who cannot get to the public libraries around town, and with your continued support, we hope to expand it to other communities!
