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.”

same outcome.

Have you ever considered about adding a little bit more than just your articles?
I mean, what you say is valuable and all. However imagine if you added some great photos or
videos to give your posts more, "pop"! Your content is excellent but with
images and clips, this blog could definitely be one of the very
best in its field. Very good blog!

I'm impressed, I must say. Seldom do I come across a blog that's both equally educative and interesting, and without a doubt, you've hit the nail on
the head. The issue is something which not enough people are speaking intelligently about.
I am very happy that I came across this during my hunt for something regarding this.

The top cellulite cream is planned to work on surface of skin
in order that it could smooth the rough texture of skin.
You little knew that ridding yourself of cellulite and helping your friends and
family to do the same could have such a momentous effect, did you.

This has been an effective method of cellulite removal for many years
and one that is still very popular and effective today.

how to get rid of a yeast infection quickly commented on 13-Dec-2013 10:19 PM
Do not use detergents, softeners and bleaches which are strong or have
fragrance to cleanse the diaper as the chemicals in them can irritate the skin.
Yeast infections are common during pregnancy, mostly because of pregnancy hormones, but also because you may have elevated blood sugar levels.
A woman should also avoid the use of products known to irritate the vagina, such as
scented feminine products (tampons and pads).
