KC library promotes early literacy through federal grant
Over the past few months, two dedicated reading enthusiasts bring reading to children, early and often, provides the key to lifelong success. Through a federal grant provided by the Institute for Museum and Library Studies, Cindy Bolin and Stephanie Hamrick, have visited numerous churches, mobile home parks and apartment complexes to reach out to parents who may be unfamiliar with the library, unable to get there, or unable to attend during scheduled summer children’s programming. “Research has shown that reading to a child, even a small infant, has a positive effect on brain development, as well as emotional development,” reports Library Director Amy Schofield, who received the grant through the S.C. State Library.
