Central Library seeks grandparents
The Howard County Central Library in Town Center is looking for grandparents to volunteer their time and share experiences with some of the library's youngest patrons.
The Library Grandparent Program will bring the young and old together in several ways. Volunteer grandparents will be involved in reading to 2- and 3-year-olds on a one-to-one basis for an hour or two a week.
In addition, they will relate their childhood experiences to the children in fall programs, "Attic Treasures" and "School Days: Then and Now."
A free workshop will be offered from 10 a.m. to noon Wednesday in the meeting room of the library.
