Aug. 7, honored NapaLit founder and former trustee Roberta Goodin for her years of supporting and promoting literacy.
Goodin founded the Story Time at the program, presented Tuesdays and Saturdays at 10 a.m., 10 years ago.
The mission statement for NapaLit, from its website napalit.org, reads:
Our Mission is to empower readers at all levels of literacy throughout the Napa Valley.
Our work toward this goal is three-fold. Our web site is current, broad scoped, and bilingual. We provide free reading programs in the community, currently for children. We also believe that the ability to write is essential to being literate, and is the natural outcome of literacy.
Along with Goodin, the group's founder and executive director, NapaLit lists its board members as Teri Buchanan, Lola Cornish, Teresa Foster, Elba Gonzalez, Kara Shurmantine and Joan Taramasso.
There's still time for you and your preschool children to catch one of the remaining Story Times at the Napa Farmers Market: The final Story Time of the season is Aug. 28.
