Every Child Ready to Read program at Rangely Regional Library

RANGELY I Rangely Regional Library has been awarded an Early Literacy Collection of 24 picture books by the Colorado State Library. The collection is based on the Every Child Ready to Read program and contains picture books based on research about what works with young children to inspire learning.
The story time collection was funded through federal funds designed to promote early literacy. The early literacy collection books provide parents and caregivers with techniques for engaging infants and young children in language and literacy games that promote learning and school-readiness. In the program, children have exposure to language and literature and arrive at kindergarten ready to learn.
Early literacy skills are research-based practices from the Every Child Ready to Read (ECRR) program, which is a national initiative from the Public Library Association to promote pre-literacy skills in children from birth through age 5 in public libraries. The state library works with early literacy librarians throughout the state to promote literacy through books, songs and activities. Parents are encouraged to visit www.StoryBlocks.org to find other fun literacy activities.
