Grow a Reader

Grow a Reader
All caregivers want their children to succeed in school and life, and we are here to help with our Grow a Reader initiative. We offer tips, activities, book recommendations, classes, and Learn & Play Rooms, all designed to help build a child’s brain, language and listening skills, and to develop a love of books and reading.  

Skills & Practices

These are the skills and practices that every child needs to get ready to read. You can help your child by incorporating some of these librarian-recommended activities and books into your everyday, whether you’re running errands or getting your child ready for bed.
