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 do believe all the ideas you have offered on your post.
They're really convincing and will certainly work. Nonetheless,
the posts are very brief for newbies. Could you please extend them a little from subsequent time?
Thanks for the post.

Jewelry is among the most prized and treasured worldly possessions, and people go to great
lengths to take care of their jewelry and make it last as long as they
can. They're still constructed from good quality supplies and can stand
the test of time and all of your baby. With
a smartphone, avoid using moving or animated pictures or videos for your background.

It will be really hard for the first 2 weeks but after that it
will be easier. Football is big business and the profits to
be gained by running and maybe selling a successful football
club are significant. If you don't like the taste, you can
also add honey to sweeten it.

Hi there just wanted to give you a quick heads up.

The words in your post seem to be running off the screen in Firefox.
I'm not sure if this is a format issue or something to do with internet browser compatibility but I figured I'd post to let you
know. The design look great though! Hope you
get the issue solved soon. Cheers
