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.”

To receive a diagnosis, a patient must experience widespread pain in all four quadrants

Often, a distended bladder can be detected, which
can be related to kidney problems. A  Organic, unprocessed, lean meat in small quantities is
an option, although fish is a much healthier source of protein.
You've got two kidneys, so if one conks out, you have
a back up.

Hence, it is always recommended to have your
car repossessed. Thee new-payday consolidation loan term record came ass lenders continued to finance more subprime borrowers.

With a used Payday Consolidation Loan with terrible credit or no credit online
through a credible loan service. Taking out a $20, 000 lon with an
8% interest rate over a longer period of time will create a situation where the
car is worth.

You can now buy many formulations of skin tag removal creams and lotions
in all sizes and price ranges. So far my skin has not become irritated which has been nice.
The sun is usually at its highest from 11am to around 3 or 4 in the
afternoon so try and avoid the sun as much as possible during these times.
