Baby Talk is a Woodford County Program for children 0-36 months. Its mission is to positively impact child development and nurture healthy parent-child relationships during the critical early years.  Baby talk is provided by the Woodford County Special Education Department.

There are many benefits from reading to your children; it builds your relationship, encourages language development, boosts a child’s self-concept and lays a foundation for moral development.   Reading helps your baby to understand the world, encourages imagination and creativity, and makes parenting easier. Please sign up at your local Illinois Prairie District Public Library branch for the following schedule.

Beginning September 11th on the 2nd & 4th Monday of every month in Washburn at 2:00 PM.

Starting September 18th on the 1st& 3rd Monday of every month in Metamora at 10:30 AM.

And beginning September 19th on the 1st& 3rd Tuesday of every month in Germantown Hills at 9:00 AM.
