Early Literacy - Parents and Caregivers

Dear Parents and Caregivers,

Play, talk, sing, read togetherWith simple and positive interactions surrounding books, songs, rhymes, and conversation, you nurture your child’s interest in learning, language, and life. You are essential to your child’s social and emotional readiness for kindergarten and reading. It’s never too early or too late to start!

The library is your best resource to support you as your child’s first and most important teacher. It is here that you will find an abundance of picture stories, educational resources, storytimes, and the expertise of your local children’s librarian. The library can serve as your child’s first classroom.
