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.”

Informative article, just what I needed. commented on 25-Jun-2013 01:06 AM
I know this if off topic but I'm looking into starting my own blog and was curious what all is required to get set up? I'm
assuming having a blog like yours would cost a pretty penny?
I'm not very web savvy so I'm not 100% certain. Any tips
or advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanks

Be very careful about coloring, although you will want to stain it; and in some cases ordering it stained already is very convenient. And some authorities on vanessa bruno outlet recommend that you never color your vanessa bruno pas cher; however, what is recommended is to stain your vanessa bruno pas cher. Which color hue to use? Well, you can pick one that is a good color combo with your yard and house. American history carries a lot of tradition with This materialwork, and you can get some great ideas for staining and colors. Remember if you choose something loud or too different, then you may end-up changing it should you decide to sell. [url=]vanessa bruno[/url]
