Beaumont Library District: Literacy Matters


Beaumont Program To Teach How Best To Read To Children
“Literacy Matters”
Press Enterprise: January 26, 2010 by Monique R Henderson

Many parents, grandparents and other caregivers have heard that they should be reading to the children in their lives.

But Beaumont Library District Program Manager Lucy Sims says that often, adult patrons have questions about exactly how they should read to children, and how children can benefit most from the practice.

Those and other questions will be addressed by UCLA professor and author Virginia Walter on Thursday evening in a free literacy program at the Beaumont Civic Center.

Walter is a professor and chairwoman of the Department of Information Studies in the Graduate School of Education and Information Studies at UCLA.
