The Louisville Free Public Library is committed to supporting various early childhood initiatives that pave the way for learning at school and throughout life. What children learn in their first few years of life—and how they learn it—can have long-lasting effects on their success and health as children, teens, and adults.
Literacy Tip of the Week
All reading leads to early writing! Point out shapes and letters as you read with your child to help them develop their letter knowledge.

The 1000 Books Before Kindergarten Challenge is a Library program that encourages all families and caregivers to read at least 1000 books with their young children before they enter kindergarten. Build the skills for future school and life success in as little as 15 minutes a day.
