Family Resource Fair set for Saturday

The Beaverton City Library will host a Family Resource Fair on Saturday from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.

Coordinated by the library’s Children’s Services Division, the free community event is tailored for families with children from infants through elementary school.

“This is a wonderful, fun-filled event where citizens can learn about vital community services and information that is critical to parents and caregivers,” said Mayor Dennis Doyle. “Anyone with children or grandchildren will find this fair very beneficial.”

The Family Resource Fair features more than 30 local nonprofit organizations.

Displays and children’s activities will be offered in the meeting rooms, 12375 S.W. Fifth St.

Families are encouraged to visit tables and talk with representatives about programs and services their organizations offer.

Exhibits highlight children’s health care, educational support for kids of all abilities, moms’ groups, fine arts, mentoring and more.

Parents and caregivers can take advantage of a kid-friendly format and learn about low-cost/no-cost programs, while the kids play and learn about everything from therapy dogs that like books to toddler play and bicycle safety.

In addition, children ages 3 to 5 not already tested in other programs can receive free vision screenings.

Early screenings are critical so that children receive eye exam referrals before they begin formal reading instruction.

“Many community members are donating a great deal of their time to ensure that this event is successful,” said Ed House, Beaverton’s library director. “We really appreciate the outpouring of support for our community’s children and families.”
