Summer Reading Program

You are your child's first teacher!

Children are born learners and they get ready to read years before they go to school.

Learn about activities you can do with your baby and toddler or your preschooler to help them become readers.

The library is the place to go for free resources to help get your child ready for school. Find out about getting ready for kindergarten and learn about resources and events.

The concepts presented here were developed as part of the Public Library Association's and the Association for Library Service to Children's Every Child Ready to Read Initiative (everychildreadytoread.org).
