Thank you from Family Nights

Will we feed a live pig cheerios? Pet a sea star? Wear hardhats and learn about our local gold mine? Yes, Yes, Yes! The Association for the Education of Young Children (AEYC) would like to thank the families and guest speakers for this year's season of Family Nights held on the first Tuesday of each month from September 2013 through May 2014. An average attendance of a hundred preschoolers and parents learned to expect surprises at the Downtown Library, meaning over 900 people participated this year.

READ ? LEARN ? SUCCEED

"Up to fourth grade, you learn to read; after fourth grade, you read to learn," goes an old elementary education maxim. Turns out, modern science agrees.
