Cedar Mill Community Library, 12505 NW Cornell Rd, is offering early literacy classes for parents.

Cedar Mill offers a workshop for parents of two- and three-year olds on Wednesday, October 22 from 6:30-8:30pm, and a workshop for parents of four- and five-year olds on Tuesday, October 28 from 6:30-8:30pm.

The foundation for getting ready to read is more than the ABC’s! These Early Literacy workshops focus on the six early literacy skills that research points to as essential for children to know before they learn to read. Early Literacy is what children know about reading and writing before they learn to read and write.

The workshops will include current information on brain research, the six early literacy skills, tips for sharing and choosing books for little ones, activities to help develop these skills and information packets.

Workshops will be held in the upstairs library meeting room and are for adults only. No registration is required.
