Raise a Reader
A Monthlong Celebration of Early Literacy
Read. Write. Sing. Play. Talk. Get your little ones ready to read this fall!
Raise a Reader is designed to share fun and easy ways to help kids get ready to read with a September full of activities, including safe, socially distanced experiences for the whole family. From Story Times and virtual events to Take & Make activities and a StoryWalk®, gear up for a lifetime of reading fun with JCPL!
We loved celebrating our littlest readers with you! Please share your thoughts with us through this brief survey.
Ready, Set, Read!
These staff picks encourage reading by celebrating all the ways you interact with your child. From playing to dancing, explore the building blocks of early literacy with these recommended reads.
