Storytimes

The early literacy programming also includes a series of year-round fun family story-time classes for children and caregivers. The BCS Library’s Early Literacy Program covers the six foundational skills essential for reading readiness in children 0-6:

  • Vocabulary
  • Print motivation
  • Print and sound awareness
  • Letter/sound correspondence
  • Narrative skills
  • Letter identification

This is done in a fun way with puppets, songs, stories and crafts. Please see the Kids Page for more information.
