NCRL Launches New Early Reading Program and Video

NCRL Webmaster - Tuesday, March 15, 2011

The North Central Regional Library (NCRL) has created its first infomercial to promote a new early reading program, Links to Literacy. The video can be viewed at: and is accessible on the library’s website (  Links to Literacy is a program designed to teach children the early literacy skills necessary to learn to read. It replaces Every Child Ready to Read @ your library as the foundation of the library’s early literacy efforts. Created by Kaplan Early Learning Company, NCRL adapted Links to Literacy to its children’s storytimes. Links to Literacy is based on National School Readiness Standards and is aligned with the Head Start Child Outcomes Framework. The program teaches 6 fundamental skills: Language Development, Book Knowledge and Appreciation, Phonological Awareness, Print Awareness, Alphabet Recognitions, and Early Writing.

The video is confidently narrated by Angela Morris, NCRL’s Children’s Services Manager and features storytimes presented by Brianna Springer and Rhonnie Craven. The video shows kids having fun while learning to read. Brianna and Rhonnie are clearly having fun too. The video was created by Howell at the Moon Productions of Wenatchee, Washington. NCRL commissioned Erik Brooks, a gifted local children’s author/illustrator to create related graphics. Brooks created a playful Library Lynx character reading scary pirate stories and hair raising adventure tales. NCRL Director of Public Services Dan Howard said, “’Every Child Ready to Read @ your library’ was an OK program, but it was designed to teach parents and other adults to teach children early literacy skills. We had to adapt it to our storytimes. We’re excited to have found a program designed specifically to these skills to young children. Our storytime programs are still a lot of fun and now we teach early reading skills better than ever.”

Generally speaking, someone who has never been at fault in an auto accident will pay a lot less for his or her car
insurance than someone who has been at fault in an accident.
If you are hunting for one of the best deal for your car insurance, don't get carried away by
mere premium figures. You must realize that quality car insurance does not come come

As long as sex is dealt with in the current confusion of ignorance and
sophistication, denial and indulgence, suppression and stimulation, punishment and exploitation,
secrecy and display, it will be associated with a duplicity
and indecency leading neither to intellectual honesty nor
human dignity. I am hoping this kind of Virility Ex Capsules

I pay a quick visit every day some websites and
sites to read content, but this webpage presents feature based posts.

I've been browsing online more than three hours today,
yet I never found any interesting article like yours.
It's pretty worth enough for me. Personally, if all
website owners and bloggers made good content as you did,
the internet will be much more useful than ever before. commented on 25-Mar-2014 09:31 AM
Hi! I could have sworn I've been to this site before
but after browsing through some of the post I realized it's new to me.
Nonetheless, I'm definitely happy I found it and I'll be
bookmarking and checking back often!

I think that what you published made a lot of sense. However, consider this, suppose
you were to write a awesome title? I am not suggesting your information is not
good, but suppose you added something that makes people desire more?
I mean NCRL Launches New Early Reading Program and Video is
a little boring. You should peek at Yahoo's home page and watch how they write news headlines
to get people to open the links. You might add a video or
a pic or two to grab people excited about everything've written.
Just my opinion, it could make your posts a little bit more interesting.
