Parents and children enjoyed story time together with local artist Lizzy Rockwell at the kick off of the 1000 Books Before Kindergarten program in Bridgeport on Saturday, April 29th!

The 1000 Books Before Kindergarten program, launched late last year in partnership with the Norwalk library system, is aimed at encouraging early literacy and preparing children to enter kindergarten ready to learn at grade level.

The event was enjoyed by both parents and children and local author Lizzy Rockwell led the children in reading their first book in the program, her book, Library Day.
