I’ve always taken my children to various programs at our local library, and they are always wonderful. But what I didn’t realize is that the library had programs for parents as well! Here’s just a couple programs coming up soon at the Kenton County Public Library. Be sure to check your local library’s website often, you will be surprised at how much they have to offer!
Programs for Parents
As My Child Grows ~ Tuesday, March 22 at 7 p.m.
Learn about age-appropriate developmental tasks and behaviors and how to encourage them from birth to pre-adolescence.
Raising Responsible Kids ~ Tuesday, March 29 at 7 p.m.
Learn when to step in and help, and when it’s best to leave kids “in the driver’s seat.” Teach kids more by doing less. Registration required for both programs by calling 962-4002 or visiting www.kentonlibrary.org/events.
And speaking of libraries…the Kenton County Public Library is giving away THREE NOOKS! Here’s some information on that:
eReader Giveaway at the Kenton County Public Library
Contest: How has the Library shaped your personal story
In honor of National Library Week (April 10-16), the Kenton County Public Library is hosting an eReader giveaway. The Library wants to know how it has helped shape your personal story. Did it help you find a job, research your family’s history, make new friends or learn a new skill? Has it saved you money or time? Have you learned a second language from the Library databases, become a life-long reader or received project help?
People are encouraged to submit a 500 word or less typed entry to www.kentonlibrary.org/story by April 1. All entries will be read and five per location will be selected to be put into a display for the public during National Library Week. Anyone who submits a valid story and is a Kenton County Public Library card holder will be entered to win one of three eReader Nooks, courtesy of the Friends of the Kenton County Public Library. Anyone living in the Greater Cincinnati area can get a free library by card with a valid ID. Children can also receive a free library card with parent permission. Library employees and members of their household are not eligible to participate.
Kenton County Public Library card holders have access to borrow thousands of eBooks. Books can be downloaded to your eReader at www.kentonlibrary.org/ebooks. Visit www.kentonlibrary.org or call 341-3200 for more information.
