Day-By-Day Calendar

Libraries support family literacy. Libraries educate the whole family by providing computer and internet access, materials such as books and music, access to learning opportunities, health and wellness information, and interactions with librarians and library specialists who are dedicated to engaging young children to learn.

 

In collaboration with Ready to Read, we are pleased to offer the Day By Day Family Literacy calendar, and all the resources on this site, to promote family literacy and family engagement. 

 

The calendar has a monthly theme and unique daily entries that encompass books, songs, activities, and family health and wellness information.  Families, caregivers, educators and librarians can use Day by Day at home and in the library and classroom to further develop early literacy skills that help young children become prepared for and succeed in school.  Children will enjoy fun, positive learning experiences that support school success and, ultimately, lifelong learning.
