RUTHERFORDTON–March’s Fabulous Free Friday at the Kidsenses Interactive Children’s Museum in Rutherfordton will take place on Friday, March 3, from 2 to 5 p.m. and is designed to help children foster a love of reading and realize just how lucky they can be to read and get free books.
The purpose of this outreach by the Partnership for Children of the Foothills is education on the importance of reading aloud just 15 minutes a day, and a push for enrollment in the Dolly Parton Imagination Library, which provides children ages birth to five a free book a month delivered to their home.
The activities of the day will involve the reading aloud of St. Patrick’s Day-themed books, games of luck, rainbow crafts, and silly shenanigans. Participants will receive a gift bag from the partnership.
KidSenses’ Interactive Children’s Museum is located at 172 N. Main Street in Rutherfordton.
With support from the NC Smart Start Initiative, Partnership for Children of the Foothills provides programs for children ages 0-5 and their families in the areas of Child Care/Education and Family Support.
The Partnership for Children builds and sustains relationships with community agencies and service providers, offering creative and unique programs for preschool children and their families, licensed childcare centers, and family childcare. For more information, visit: PFCFoothills.org
