ARKids First and public libraries focus on summer safety

LITTLE ROCK, ARK. – ARKids First, the state’s CHIP program (Children’s Health Insurance Program), has partnered with the Arkansas Public Library System’s popular summer reading program to provide educational materials and a series of safety events during May, June and July.  The educational materials and events are aimed at keeping kids safe during the summer and encouraging parents of already enrolled kids to utilize ARKids benefits for well-child doctor visits.

All public library branches in the state’s system will have summer safety educational packets available for children who register for free summer reading programs.  A series of eight summer safety events will be held at public libraries throughout the state.
