Early Literacy Tip—May 2018

Families Visit the Library

Visiting the library is an important way to promote children’s language and literacy development. Libraries offer books and digital resources that families can borrow, along with story times and other parent–child learning opportunities. In library settings, when parents provide direction in choosing library books and other resources their children spend more time reading and acquire more knowledge compared to children who are left to navigate library resources on their own. Check the RFPL monthly calendar and watch for Summer Reading information!
