Benefits of Reading to Preschoolers |
The Traveling Storytime program is sponsored by the Redwood City Public Library's Youth Services Department, whose goal is to reach as many of the city's children as possible to instill the love of literature, learning and libraries. Each week, trained volunteers read to groups of children in daycare centers and preschools throughout Redwood City. The program has received grants and awards from a variety of organizations since its creation.
- Traveling Storytime began in 2000 with a Director and a handful of volunteers.
- In February 2008, The Traveling Storytime program celebrated the milestone of having read to 100,000 children.
- Today, approximately 40-60 volunteers provide the program's services to about 1,000 children on a regular basis.
