Early Literacy Programs at The Westport Library

The Westport Children’s Library Early Literacy programs are returning this month, with fun, interactive classes to develop your child’s early literacy skills. 

Our early literacy programs include four practices that parents and caregivers can use to make it easier for children to learn to read: talking, singing, reading, and playing. Learning these skills can have a long-term impact on future reading achievement and academic success. All starting this week!
