Every Child Ready to Read @ Your Library

Before children learn to read, they must develop a range of early literacy skills. Learning these skills begins at birth and has a long-term impact on children’s reading achievement and academic success. Help the children in your life develop early literacy skills and learn the five simple practices you can include in your daily routine to set kids up for reading success. All parents/caregivers welcome. Family Literacy Day® activities available for children in attendance.
