Every Third Saturday of the Month
Representatives from ABLE (Advocates for Basic Legal Equality) will be available the 3rd Tuesday of January from 2:30-4:30 pm to answer questions regarding free legal services for qualifying patrons.
ABLE's Mobile Benefit Bank is staffed by trained AmeriCorps members who assist individuals with applying for government benefits and will also complete legal assessments. These assessments are reviewed by attorneys who determine eligibility for continuing legal assistance.
1000 Books Before Kindergarten
The concept is simple, the rewards are priceless. Read a book (any book) to your newborn, infant, and/or toddler. The goal is to have read 1,000 books (yes you can repeat books) before your precious one starts kindergarten. Does it sound hard? Not really if you think about it. If you read just 1 book a night, you will have read about 365 books in a year. That is 730 books in two years and 1,095 in three years. If you consider that most children start kindergarten at around 5 years of age, you have more time than you think (so get started).
