The Cedar Mill & Bethany Community Libraries are hosting free vision screenings for children ages 3-7 years through See to Read*, a statewide initiative focused on early detection for vision problems. At least 15% of all preschoolers have an undetected vision problem that needs to be treated with glasses. Oregon law states that all children entering kindergarten must show proof of a vision screening.

We will offer the following FREE drop-in vision screenings, performed by trained screeners*. No appointments, drop-in only.

Bethany Library:  Tuesday, Jan. 29, 10:30 am – 12:00 pm
Cedar Mill Library: Thursday, Jan. 31, Saturday, Feb. 2 and Wednesday, Feb. 20, 10:30 – 11:30 am
