Providence Public Library presents its 2011-12 series of Family Learning Sundays. Join us...every 1st Sunday of the month through May 2012, as we offer “learning families” varied opportunities to seek new knowledge — together — at the Library.
“In a learning family, both parents and children are equal partners in shared learning experiences.”
Richard Louv, Senior Editor of Connect for Kids and San Diego Union-Tribute columnist who first used the term in 1999.
March 4: Discover Letterboxing with Cathy Davis Hayes and Naomi Messier, RISD Young Artist Program
Letterboxing is an exciting “treasure hunt”-style outdoor activity perfect for families. In this family workshop, participants learn how to participate in letterboxing and, most importantly, design and construct the object of the hunt, the personal hand-carved stamp, which serves as the letterboxer’s signature. For ages 6 and up.
