Literacy Night on April 29th
From the Newport Rotary Club:
Literacy Night is Wednesday April 29th from 5:30 PM - 7:30 PM at the Newport Public Library. Since 2010 Rotary has been sponsoring the evening for the children and families of Head Start. In 2013 they included Newport Cubby Preschool and this year they are also including early intervention.
Rotarians give tours of the Library, Provide art activities and Rebecca Storyweaver from the Library provides story time. This year we are also adding a scavenger hunt for the children . At the end of the evening Rotarians, children and families are treated to a BBQ. Rotary also provides a book for each child to keep. The book is chosen by Rebecca and the teachers as one that will be beneficial in helping the children prepare for 1st grade. The age of the children that attend the event is 4-5 year olds. This event is completely paid for by Newport Rotary.
