Clarksville Rotary donated the funds to purchase new items for our children’s early literacy and play stations at the Clarksville Branch Library. The Library maintains play and discovery stations that encourage children to learn key concepts in early literacy. The five main skills for a child being ready to read include Talking, Singing, Reading, Writing and Playing. Our programming for younger children touches on the skills of Talking, Singing, Reading and Writing and our play and discovery centers foster the skill of Playing. Play is one of the best ways for children to learn language and literacy skills as it helps children put thoughts into words and talk about what they are doing.
Visit the library to try out the new play areas, and visit http://clarksvilleinrotary.org/ for more information about the Clarksville Rotary and what they do for our community.
