Club 306 Registration Is Now Open

Club 306 at Jenkintown Library is now accepting applications for our 2017/2018 program. Club 306 is an early literacy program for children ages 4-8 and their favorite adult. This program works best for beginning readers ages 4-6, or older readers ages 7-8 who need a little more help with developing reading skills.

We meet once a month on the first Wednesday of the month at 7:00 PM from October through May. We have an activity and the family goes home with a FREE goody bag of paperback books, laminated sight words, and some other kit or activity. Child and adult promise to spend 10 minutes a day 4 times a week on a fun literacy activity. In May, we have a party and children will receive their reading trophies.

Spaces are limited to ten families whose children have not participated in Club 306 before. Please register at Jenkintown Library, 460 York Road, Jenkintown, PA 19046. For more information, call (215) 884-0593 and ask for Bonnie.
