For the young scientist or mathematician in your life

When you join the fun of investigations and experiments, you can supply your child with rich vocabulary and general knowledge that will become the foundation for learning to read. Check out these new resource books to help you support your child's inquiry and mathematical thinking!

Going Places: Playing and learning while you're on the road

Now that we are in the holiday season, you and your children are probably going to be out and about even more than usual. Your time on the road is also full of opportunities to help your child get ready to read!

Join us for a workshop at the Mission Branch Library on Thursday, December 4, 6:30-7:45 PM to learn more about how you can build pre-reading skills as you run errands and visit friends and relatives together. Participants will get to make a gel writing board to use with their children.

More than a Meal

What is it like when you and your child share a meal? No matter what, where or how you and your child eat, mealtime is another opportunity to build the skills your child needs for reading. 

Parents, please join us this Wednesday, November 5 at the Molly Pruitt Library for a fun and informative workshop about how we can incorporate early literacy into mealtime experiences.

Please register at or by calling (210)207-2531.
