Teaching parents and other caregivers how to support the early literacy development of their children is the basis of Every Child Ready to Read® @ your library®.  ECRR is framed by five practices (talking, singing, reading, writing and playing) and is based on the following principles:

  • Reading is an essential life skill.
  • Learning to read begins at birth.
  • Parents and caregivers are a child’s first and best teachers.
  • Lifelong learning is a primary role of the public library; public libraries need to support parents and caregivers as they develop early literacy skills in children from birth to age five.
  • ECRR is a parent education initiative that provides skills and strategies parents and caregivers can use to help children get ready to read.

ECRR is applied to Library Adventures and PRIME TIME Family Reading Time.  Age appropriate literacy with a focus on math and science will boost cognitive skills, pattern recognition, fine motor skills and focus on aspects of STEM and Common Core

Introduction to the natural language also includes the use of the library’s database used in the activity lab.  ECRR provides a new format when using the e-book and audio book downloadable collection with young reader.

Farmington Public Library uses the Every Child Ready to Read practices from the American Library Association to help parents in their critical role as their child's first teacher. Current research on early literacy indicates that it is never too early to prepare children for success as readers. Bring your child to Story Time and enjoy stories, finger plays, songs and movement activities.  Learn fun and easy ways to help your children gain the skills they need to start school - Ready to Read. 

   Guidelines for Storytime

  • Be playful: Please join in and show your child that storytime is fun. The time to visit with other adults is before or after storytime.
  • Distractions: Arriving late is sometimes impossible to avoid, but please enter the room with as little disruption as possible. Toys and food should be put away, and phones should be turned off or set on vibrate.
  • Those bad days: Remember, we all have bad days. If your child becomes upset, please step out of the room to "regroup," then quietly return.
  • Those insecure days: Please be patient with your child if he or she wants to observe instead of joining in. We completely understand that for some children this will be their first group experience in the library, and that it may take a few visits for them to feel comfortable.
  • Check out books: An important part of the storytime experience for children is checking out books to read or share at home. Children of any age may have their very own library card. We believe the age a child gets their own card is the parents' decision.
  • School Groups and Daycare Providers:  Library Adventures is available for school and daycares and must be scheduled online. 
  • Email youthtours@infoway.org
