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 December at the Beaumont, Eagle Creek, Northside, and Tates Creek branches.  The regular storytime schedule will resume in January.


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