LITERACY KITS!

WE HAVE LITERACY KITS!
Literacy Kits are special tools created by our librarians aimed at helping our youngest patrons grow into great readers. The kits are designed to promote practice of early literacy skills such as vocabulary, comprehension, phonics, and more, which are all crucial for helping kids to succeed in school. Each kit contains books and at least one activity selected to strengthen at least one of the early literacy skills.
The library’s Literacy Kits provide an easy, portable tool for parents and caregivers to help children develop essential skills for early learning. They combine reading and play to engage all the child’s senses around a central theme, while encouraging exploration and the love of reading.
A BIG thank you to the Library of Michigan and Institute of Museum and Library Services for funding this program!
