Supporting Early Literacy

Early literacy is all the skills your children are learning about reading and writing before they're ready to do it themselves.  Sing along in our programs, play in our spaces, read and talk about books from our collection, or write a story about your trip to the library. These are all early literacy practices that you can do together -- and we can help!  Learn more on our Young Children page.
