What is Early Literacy?

Early literacy does not mean teaching young children how to read. Instead, it means helping children develop the skills they will need to become successful readers. Early literacy activities build rich language skills: vocabulary, self-expression, and understanding (comprehension). These skills help children make sense of printed words when they start reading.


Please note:  There will be no storytimes during August at the Beaumont, Eastside, Northside, Tates Creek, and Village branches.  The regular storytime schedule will resume in September.

Daycares and preschools, please call ahead for all children's programming.
