Library program: The New Castle Public Library is participating in a new Pennsylvania initiative -- I Am Your Child. The IAYC Foundation was created in recognition that 90 percent of brain growth occurs in years 0 to 3. Parent/caregiver interaction affects how a child's brain is organized, according to the IAYC Foundation. The program is offering several videos at the public library for parents that involved learning, child care, discipline and health. All videos can be borrowed for up to seven days at no charge.
