 Our Winter Early Literacy group registration is now available on our website through our Event Calendar.
The goal of these Early Literacy groups is to foster an early love of community and learning in familiar settings within the town of Bourne. All groups have been created for parent/ caregiver participation.
These groups are offered through a collaboration between the Jonathan Bourne Public Library and Bourne for Children CFCE.

Our Winter session runs January 6th through March 6th.  More details on our Events Calendar or "Things to do" page.
