For Immediate Release

Preschool Round-up
                (EAST CHICAGO, IN) – The East Chicago Public Library is happy to announce our second Preschool Round-Up.  The Preschool Round-up will be held at the Robert A. Pastrick Branch on Thursday, April 19 from 6 pm – 7:30 pm.  The Pastrick Branch is located at 1008 W. Chicago Avenue.  The purpose of the Preschool Round-Up is to provide an opportunity for parents to meet with preschool teachers from the local area preschools and to learn about their programs.  While the parents are busy with the preschool teachers, the preschoolers are invited to participate in a Story Time complete with stories, crafts, and other fun activities.
                Parents will also have an opportunity to learn about the importance of reading aloud to their children.  Preschoolers and their parents will be invited to join a special reading program entitled “1,000 Books to Read Before Kindergarten.”
       Light refreshments will be offered.  Any questions or concerns, please contact Pam Bartusiewicz, Acting Associate Director of Youth Services at 219.397.5505 x 12 or 219.397.2453 x 25.
