Resources for Early Childhood Literacy
Early Literacy is what children know about reading and writing before they actually read or write.
Six pre-reading skills get children ready to learn how to read: vocabulary, print motivation, print awareness, narrative skills, letter knowledge and phonological awareness. (Want to know more? Click here for some helpful definitions) Beginning at birth, what you do every day helps prepare your child to become a successful reader. These early literacy skills are best developed through talking, singing, reading, writing and playing.
At the library we have books, music, storytimes and librarians excited to help you on this adventure!

I am a voracious reader. You have to read to survive. People who read for pleasure are wasting their time. Reading isn't fun; it's indispensable. Woody Allen
