Literacy Career Fair

Join the Lansdowne Public Library and the Darby Free Library Monday, April 4, 2011 beginning at 6:00 PM for a Literacy Career Fair! Our special guest is Stephen R. Swinburne the author of 2011's Pennsylvania One Book, Whose Shoes? A Shoe for Every Job

Each year, Pennsylvania's One Book program highlights the importance of early literacy development in preschoolers ages 3 to 6. Another goal of this program is to increase awareness among parents, other family members, and the early childhood community of the need for practices that promote early literacy development.

For our event members of the community will meet with children and their parents and will demonstrate their careers and talents and tell what shoes are best for the job. Our special guest is the author of the book, Stephen R. Swinburne, who will read and sign free copies of his book for each child.

Also scheduled to appear:

Musician Noelle Huie from Reilly the band
Hoop Dancer Sarah Maccarelli from Hooping with Sarah
Ballet Dance Jamie Laughlin from Ajala Dance Studios
Office Larry Albertoli, Lansdowne Police Department
Magician Ran'D Shine from Shine Entertainment
Laboratory Technicians from Fitzgerald Mercy Hospital
Amtrak Safety Track Program

Children's Librarian Mr. Perry

A fruit stand with free samples and volunteers from RSVP, the Retired Senior Volunteer Program will be dressed as clowns and doing face painting! There will be crafts and activities for children and the first 50 children registered will get a copy of the book!

The event will be held at the beautiful historic Twentieth Century Club located at 84 S. Lansdowne Avenue Lansdowne, PA 19050.
