"Is Your Child Ready for Kindergarten?," a free presentation and screening, will be presented by the Hawaii State Public Library System (HSPLS) and the Learning Disabilities Association of Hawaii (LDAH) Ekolu Eha Ike Pono (EEIP) School Readiness Project at six Oahu public libraries from November 15 through December 9.

Children ages 2 through 5, accompanied by a parent or caregiver, are invited to attend the following libraries' regularly-scheduled toddler/preschool storytime 30 minutes prior to the screening time:

.Nov. 15, 11 a.m. - Mililani Public Library (95-450 Makaimoimo St.; telephone: 627-7470)

.Nov. 20, 11 a.m. - Kaimuki Public Library (1041 Koko Head Ave.; telephone: 733-8422)

.Dec. 1, 11 a.m. - Hawaii Kai Public Library (249 Lunalilo Home Rd.; telephone: 397-5833)

.Dec. 9, 10:30 a.m. - Wahiawa Public Library (820 California Ave.; telephone: 622-6345)

These optional screenings are quick, easy, and non-invasive. Results are confidential. Parents or caregivers may also choose to schedule private screenings at a later date with EEIP Project staff. When your child enters kindergarten, he or she will participate in the Hawaii State School Readiness Assessment and hopefully be ready to pass it with flying colors! Contact the hosting library two weeks in advance if a sign language interpreter or other special accommodation is needed. For more information about the program, please call the hosting library.

The EEIP School Readiness Project, funded by Aloha United Way, is a multi-agency collaborative project led by Learning Disabilities Association of Hawaii, in partnership with Hale Na`au Pono, Keiki 'O Ka Aina, the University of Hawaii Center on Disability Studies, Community Children's Council Office and the Institute for Native Pacific Education and Culture (INPEACE). For more information about the project, please call the LDAH-EEIP School Readiness Project at 696-5361.
