Early Literacy Program
Summer reading program for children up to and including Kindergarten
What is the Early Literacy Reading Program?
It is a program that encourages even our youngest library visitors to become
good listeners and to love books and story time.
For every 10 books that your little ones listen to- they get a prize!
If your soon to be Kindergartner is already reading,
they would still participate in this group
and would get credit for the books they read as well as book that are read to them.
