Coffee and Kids


What is Coffee & Kids?

It was a once monthly, parent led discussion group where parents could discuss concerns, share stories and ask questions centered around their children.  Retired educators Ann Asbeck, Mari Lynn Garbowicz, and Beth Jacobson were able to provide guidance based on proven research and years of experience. They shared what was developmentally appropriate and relevant to today’s learner. Coffee and Kids provided a relaxed atmosphere for give and take discussions.

Coffee and Kids has enjoyed providing the community with resources to aid in promoting literacy to your child.  Hopefully, Coffee and Kids discussions and information provided in the Demmer Library Newsletters have been valuable to you.  

 We are letting you know that Coffee and Kids will no longer be meeting at the Demmer Library in its current format. Perhaps, we will be able to provide something different in the future. Please let your Demmer Library staff know if there is a specific topic that you may want to see discussed, and we will work to accommodate your request.

 You also will not see the Coffee and Kids section in the monthly newsletter.  However, you will be able to access previous information by logging onto the Demmer website (demmerlibrary.org) and accessing the Library Page newsletter. There you will find links to all the previous Coffee and Kids resources. Back articles can be found under the heading of “Programs”.

 Coffee and Kids wishes you and your child a magical journey with literacy and books. We sincerely hope that the information provided through this program was relevant and useful for you and your child.“–Coffee and Kids
