Self Help Inc., a regional community action agency, is offering “Chat, Play, and Grow,” an event for parents and children at the Holbrook Public Library on Thursday from 1 to 2 p.m. Children are invited to read a story and participate in a facilitator-led activity while parents meet with another facilitator to discuss parenting topics. The event is part of Community Partnerships for Children, a state-funded program that helps parents connect with one another, learn parenting skills, and, when needed, access public assistance programs. Facilitators have undergone a criminal background check by the Massachusetts Department of Early Education and Care. To register, call the library at 781-767-3644.
