Storytimes and other literacy based programs promote the development of early literacy skills. Research shows that parents and caregivers play the most critical role in their child’s early literacy and language development as their first teachers.
Developing early literacy skills will make it easier for children to read once they are ready to do so.
Discover and practice early literacy activities such as: talking, singing, reading, writing and playing together with your child at one of our in person storytime programs or our online Family Storytime live, Thursdays at 2 pm, on Facebook!

Research shows that parents and caregivers play the most critical role in their child’s early literacy and language development. We have created a number of videos that offer support to parents and caregivers.
