Early literacy is key to a community’s success! Together with Hedberg Public Library, Beloit Public Library donated 100 early literacy book bags to families of Early Start. Each bag included a brand new picture book, early literacy workbook, box of crayons, and promotional materials highlighting early literacy programs and resources available at both libraries. Bags were distributed to families in Beloit and Janesville by Early Start Home Visitors. In addition to this effort, BPL and HPL partner with Rock Walworth Comprehensive Family Services Head Start and Early Head Start to provide parenting workshops and early literacy story times to promote school readiness for families of Rock County. Anything we can do to promote early literacy is a win … in our book!
