Next Door’s Mobile Library Big Success!
As an award-winning early education provider, Next Door focuses on improving literacy and school readiness for children ages 0–5 in Milwaukee’s central city. St. Joseph Academy is happy to be partnered with Next Door to help provide further opportunities for the children of our Early Childhood Education Center.
Next Door brought their Mobile Book Library, full of books and activities for our ECEC children’s enjoyment. Each participant could choose 2 books of their liking to take home. Amongst their assortment of books were 40 Dr. Seuss books and Spanish books from which to choose. There were also a few activities for the children to participate in, including pin the tail on Horton, painting Green Eggs & Ham, and face painting!
33 of our ECEC families walked away with a total of 142 books to help expand their home libraries and to encourage reading in their homes!
