The Santa Barbara Public Library System announces the next session of the very popular Play With Me, Learn With Me: Parent/Child Workshop series for parents and caregivers with children ages 1 to 3. The informational and fun workshops will begin Saturday, April 11 and continue each Saturday through May 9, from 10:15 to 11:30am at the Goleta Library, 500 N. Fairview Ave. in Goleta. Pre-registration is required for this 5-week program and space is limited.
The Play With Me, Learn With Me Workshops provide an opportunity for parents to teach their young children early concepts like colors, patterns, shapes and sequences through play, stories, songs, crafts, nursery rhymes, and other activities. Parents and caregivers will have the opportunity to speak with a professional each week on topics of interest such as nutrition, dental health, common issues in the life of young families and much more. Librarians will be on hand to provide books and other resources on parenting issues as well as recommend materials for children.
This project is made possible through funding by the U.S. Institute of Museum and Library Services under the provisions of the Library Services and Technology Act, and administered by California State Library. The Friends of the Goleta Library also co-sponsor the program.
