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.”

I'm really enjoying the design and layout of your blog. It's a very easy on the eyes which makes it much
more pleasant for me to come here and visit more often.

Did you hire out a designer to create your theme?

Although, Jarvis still saw a naked woman, and
decided it was indecent. This is similar to the edge of your seat.

If you're creative as well as practical and desire privacy and security, then all you need to do is a little research. cheap lululemon yoga clothing with metal materials are abundant, and businesses have found many ways to make them look attractive if that is a concern for you.

Greetings! Quick question that's completely off topic. Do you know how to make your site mobile friendly? My weblog looks weird when viewing from my apple iphone. I'm trying to find a theme or plugin that might be able to correct
this problem. If you have any recommendations, please share.
Many thanks!

Usually, the actual bill of substantial hire as well
as a gift. At the first sips this wine offered my
palate gooseberries. This really is another destination that is perfect for a summer
and a pleasure to discover, offering a wealth of culture,
historical cities, regional celebrations and a winter vacation.
