FOLK reading program scheduled for Jan. 8
The Friends of the Libraries, Kona is hosting its family reading program, “Books are Building Blocks,” from 5 to 6:30 p.m. Jan. 8 at the Kailua-Kona Public Library.
Participants will “visit” France with guest speakers Cheryl King, a FOLK member and retired librarian who lived in France, and Fernand Guiot, a master baker and instructor. Kealakehe Intermediate School French Club members will share a song.
Parents must attend the program with their children. Attendees will be separated into reading groups: kindergarten, grades one to two, three to four, five to six and parents. Each group will be read to, then discuss what was read.
Registration will be held from 4:30 to 5 p.m. in front of the library. Families will meet on the lanai for light refreshments, door prizes and books, following the program. Participation is limited to 75 participants.
