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.”

From Rita Rudner to Mac Cook, Harrah's has always got someone rockin the
house. Plus, dance the night away at Gold Diggers, your accommodation's own nightclub.

So if the famous question for you is posed: What's the top hotel in Las Vegas, the solution
will probably be different from person to person.

Wearing PPE (personal protective equipment) like chainsaw trousers
is vital to operating the machinery safely. There are some which are specifically
for domestic use while there are others which are only used for industrial uses and needs.
First of all, there's the self-feed test: blunt chains won't self-feed and
will have to be actively 'pushed' into the wood.

When originally announced, there were two versions, the
8-inch and 10. One of the fascinating features of this tablet is
the capacitive stylus which is situated in a slot underneath the capacitive display.

You can just use the tablet when there is no place to set it up as a netbook.

The Rebel XS has some great features and produces
great excellent images. Sensor size is important to some camera
enthusiasts. This system has been a popular choice for a long time,
although the analog TV signals are limited by how much data can be held for the screen and sound.
