If your child’s preschool years are coming to an end, you’ve probably begun to wonder if he or she is ready to take that next step to kindergarten.  Kirkwood Public library would like to help make sure all children are as prepared as they can be with our Count on Books program. This fun and interactive six-week session will combine stories and math activities designed to introduce early math concepts with a focus on kindergarten readiness. Sessions run Fridays, March 28 through May 2, 10:00-10:45 a.m. To sign up, visit Kirkwood Public Library’s Children’s page, go to Our Events and click the link for Count on Books.
