Greece Public Library, 2 Vince Tofany Blvd., Rochester, will exhibit art created by students in preschool classes at the Northwest Family YMCA during April as part of the Rochester Association of the Education of Young Children’s celebration of Month of the Young Child.
“We are very pleased to host this exhibit at the main branch of the library on Town Hall campus,” said Greece Town Supervisor Bill Reilich. “I would also like to encourage families with young children to find out more about the 1,000 Books Before Kindergarten program when they visit. It’s an excellent way to promote literacy and foster a love of reading from an early age.”
The program is a reading incentive program for ages 5 and younger and their parents/caregivers. Two hundred ninety-seven Greece children and babies currently are enrolled; they have collectively read over 37,000 books since the program’s debut in September 2015.
The library offers many additional resources in support of kindergarten preparedness, including age-appropriate book collections, early literacy learning computers and librarian-led early literacy classes.
