A special message for parents:
Library visits, attending programs, and reading aloud at home support school readiness skills. Motivation, phonological abilities, increased vocabulary, narrative abilities, print awareness and letter knowledge are only a few benefits of a literature-rich environment.Library usage also increases a child’s exposure to ideas, places, concepts, and situations they may not have previously encountered. Experience with different genres and media can help children develop and express their creativity. Most importantly, trips to the library will encourage reading as a lifelong habit, applaud learning, and celebrate your child's imagination.
