The Birth to 5 Summer Reading Program is simple this year – have daily fun with your little one while encouraging early literacy. Help your child get ready to read by focusing on the five essential ready to read components; Read, Talk, Sing, Play, Write. Follow along the honeycombs, and cross one off when the activity is completed. 

Attend an event at the library!
