Early Literacy Week
Early Literacy Week at the library unfolds Sunday, May 2 – Saturday, May 8.
To celebrate, children who check out items from the library will receive a free book and bookmark to take home, while supplies last.
All children who check out items during Early Literacy Week will be entered in a grand prize drawing for a 3 month subscription to BookRoo, a Love Them Out Loud literacy box and a $50 gift card to Out of Print! One lucky winner will be randomly selected from each branch.
End the week that Saturday at our Newport, Cold Spring and Carrico/Fort Thomas branches for a special outdoor story time! Program begins at 10:30 am at all branches. Registration is required.
