Library Offers Many Early Literacy Resources

The Ridgefield Library will continue its recent focus on literacy Tuesday, April 5th at 7:30 PM, with “Early Literacy Resources,” an event for parents of 3 to 6-year-olds.  Please join us and learn how you can support your children’s literacy growth with a wealth of free resources on the web and at the Library.  Get a guided tour through the stacks by staff librarians and view a demonstration of the Library’s online capabilities.  Highlights will include an introduction to available formats and media such as educational DVDs and book-and-audio kits; tips on searching for books by genre and level; recommended reading lists by interest and age; the Little Pim language learning program for young children; and the TumbleBooks online literacy resource. Registration is requested at 203-438-2282 x1024. Even if you are a regular visitor, you will be amazed by how much more the Library has to offer!

This event was developed by the Younger Set, a committee of community volunteers who work with library staff to organize and promote programs for pre-schoolers and their families.  If you would like to help plan future events, please contact Mary Rindfleisch at 203-438-2282 x1009 or
