Program Overview

Books for Me is an innovative program that helps children birth to age five develop crucial pre-reading and writing skills that improve school readiness. Books for Me empowers and motivates parents and caregivers to be directly involved as their child's first and most impactful teacher and provides high quality books to build home libraries. When the primary adults in a child's life know about the importance of early literacy and how to nurture pre-reading skills at home, the effect of library efforts is multiplied many times. Books for Me engages parents and caregivers and provides tools they can use with their children outside of the library.
