Last summer we were able to give away Early Literacy Kits to daycare providers and caregivers of children ages 0-3.  Funded by the Growing Readers Together Grant through the Temple Hoyne Buell Foundation, the kits included board books, educational toys, manipulatives and tips.  We have some kits available to check out.   Please stop by and inquire about our kits.

We are enhancing our story time area!  Our story corner has been designed to encourage literacy with the small child in mind (ages 0-3).  Board Books, Books designed to enhance early literacy, learning toys, and magnetic letter boards in a space just for kids!  We will be adding additional story times in the near future.  If you would like to volunteer for our story times please let us know!
