The First Five Yearssix cartoon children reading a book

A child’s development in the first five years of life is amazing and important! From the moment a child is born, they start absorbing information through their senses. The support a child receives in the first five years of life sets the stage for future success. 

The library provides many resources that can help parents navigate this time in their child’s life.

Early Literacy is the Foundation to Learning

Early literacy is what children know about reading and writing before they can read and write. 

Developing early literacy skills begins at birth and prepares children for a future of reading and learning. Parents are a child’s first teacher and the library is here to support families.
