Get reading in November
From National Young Readers Week and National Book Awards Week, there are multiple reasons to pick up a good book in November. Individuals and families are invited to visit the library where the staff loves to help find books that spark interest in readers of all ages. Here are some tips from “10 Ways to Instill a Love of Reading in Your Child”:
• Start at the very beginning – read from day one.
• Put books around the house.
• Take your kids to local library story times.
• As soon as they can write, get your child a library card.
