Early Literacy


Early Literacy

Providing information, training, technical assistance, and resources for Idaho libraries and their community partners. Our vision is for all parents and caregivers to nurture their children’s early literacy skills and for all children to develop as independent readers and become lifelong learners.

Read to Me’s public awareness efforts encompass a wide variety of materials and dissemination methods to reach families across Idaho with information about early literacy and library resources. Outreach materials are available for free to Idaho library staff by using our online ORDER FORM.
