Free Workshop for Parents and Educators
register for Every Child Ready to Read  
1pm to 2:30pm

Parents and Educators are welcome to join us for a brief summary presentation of the library’s Storytime,

Every Child Ready to Read.  An introduction to 1000 Books Before Kindergarten will also be presented.

ECRR is a turn-key research-based early literacy education program for parents and caregivers.  The ECRR workshop model provides tools and strategies to provide quality parent education and put library resources into the hands of parents.  The goals of ECRR are to change practices in our field around parent early literacy education, resulting in improved early literacy skills in very young children, and to educate parents on how to nurture early literacy skills in their children and successfully become their child’s first teacher.

1KB4K  Reading Program for every child in your family, from infant to Kindergarten. 
The goal is to have read 1,000 books. 

Does reading 1,000 books seem totally overwhelming?
3 books a day for 1 year = 1,095 books

1 book a day for 3 years = 1,095 books

Read the same book over, and over, and over!  Read in any language, library storytimes count, too!  Studies have shown that reading with your child provides a great opportunity for bonding, is fun and will create life-long memories for both of you!  Keep track of the titles of books that you read with your child.

Books Your Child Should Hear Before Kindergarten

The Farmington Public Library Youth Services will provide you with a prize for the first 100 books read. 
Please bring your log to Story Time and/or a youth program.
