Dr. F. Joyce Gerber will present a free workshop about children’s sleep patterns. You can’t control your baby’s sleep cycle and neither can your child.

This is the first of a four-part child development workshop series held each Thursday evening in January. The first workshop is Thursday, Jan. 8, from 7 until 8:15 p.m. at the Summit County Library/Kimball Junction Branch at 6505 N Landmark Dr.
