Do you know someone who cares for children regularly in his or her home? Do they live in or near Alamosa, CO? They could be a licensed home childcare provider or they might be what I affectionately refer to as a “Granny or Auntie,” a family member who cares for an extended family’s children.

If you are one of those special people or know someone who is, please get in touch with me (scroll down the left hand column for phone and email info). Why?

Because Storybox Special is expanding! Storybox Special is Southern Peaks Library’s early literacy program for home childcare providers. Each month I’ll pick up your previous month’s box of books and deliver a new box to your home for you and your kids to enjoy (and in the process develop early literacy skills).  The only requirement is taking an initial (free) class about early literacy; the entire program is free.

How did we become so blessed with an expansion? Last night the Friends of the Library received a $3000 grant from the El Pomar Foundation to grow the program further here in the San Luis Valley!

I am so tickled and so thankful–and I can’t wait to connect with more families in the months to come, thanks to El Pomar!

So give me a call or email!
