Join us for the 14th Annual Early Childhood Festival on Saturday, March 10, from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the Main Library. More than 40 vendors will be here with activities for children and information on classes and services for little ones. Preschools, music classes, and places for sports and birthday parties will be repre- sented, as well as organizations in our county that support early childhood development. Free developmental screenings for chil- dren from ages two months to 5 years will be offered by the Library and Success by 6. A screening will not only allow you to catch problems early, but provide reassurance that your child is acting, playing or speaking in ways that are expected at different ages. At the end of the screening, you will have a good understanding of what developmental milestones have been reached, what to expect next, and what activities can be done at home to support learning and development. You will also learn if your child needs additional services and where to find these resources. The Lions Club will also be in attendance offering free walk-in vision screenings for all ages, beginning as early as 6 months. Door prizes will be given away through- out the event. Cool Critters will be giving a presentation with live animals at 10 a.m. and jugglers and balloon artists will be strolling throughout the festival to add to the carnival atmosphere. There will be an educational children's play area and of course the Library itself is a terrific place to spend quality time with your family.
