Early literacy program at the library

Kindergarten-readiness series funded by The Ford Family Foundation

Children ages 3–6 and their parents or caregivers are invited to joinbthe 6-week spring session of the Kindergarten Toolbox program designed to help preschoolers gain early literacy skills on Thursdays from 5:30–6:30 pm at the Grants Pass branch of Josephine Community Library beginning April 27.

During this 6-week session, families will receive a toolbox with school supplies and other materials accompanied by demonstrations and practice sessions designed for preschoolers. Each week a new book and “tool” will be offered. Tools include letter and number manipulatives, fun activities, tips for parents, and more.

Registration is required for the spring session from April 27 through June 1. Participants will meet in the children’s library at the Grants Pass branch, 200 NW C Street, on the following Thursdays for the spring session: April 27, May 4, May 11, May 18, May 25, and June 1.

This program is free and open to the public. A library card is not needed to participate. To register and for more information, email info@josephinelibrary.org or call 541-476-0571.

All residents living within the library district boundary qualify for a library card. For those living in Josephine County, but outside of the library district boundary, a library card scholarship is provided thanks to Josephine Community Library Foundation to ensure access to library resources for everyone.

The Kindergarten Toolbox program is made possible by a grant from The Ford Family Foundation to support early childhood literacy.
