Academic research about early literacy development can be a little heavy on, well, academic terms. But it really all boils down to one idea: there are five basic activities you should do with babies and young children to set the foundation for future reading and school success:
The library offers special storytime programs for young children, including those who are newborn to age 2. These storytimes are typically called My First Storytime and they are held at many of our 25 locations.

To find a storytime at a location near you, consult the Kids page, which is found under the Interests tab.
