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.”

A motivating discussion is definitely worth comment.
I think that you ought to publish more on this subject, it may not be
a taboo matter but typically folks don't speak about such topics.

To the next! Kind regards!!

Thanks for your publish. My spouse and i have often noticed that a lot of people are desperate to lose
weight simply because wish to appear slim in addition to looking attractive.
Nevertheless, they do not generally realize that there are additional benefits for losing
weight also. Doctors state that over weight people s
with a variety of conditions that can be perfectely attributed to their own excess weight.

The good news is that people who definitely are overweight plus suffering from different diseases can help
to eliminate the severity of their illnesses through losing weight.
It is possible to see a progressive but marked improvement with health as soon as even
a moderate amount of fat loss is attained.
