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.”

Unquestionably believe that which you said. Your favorite reason seemed
to be on the web the easiest thing to be aware of.
I say to you, I certainly get annoyed while people think about worries that they just
do not know about. You managed to hit the nail upon the top as well as defined out the whole
thing without having side effect , people could take a signal.
Will probably be back to get more. Thanks

Hello! I understand this is kind of off-topic
however I had to ask. Does running a well-established blog such as yours
take a lot of work? I'm completely new to running a blog however I do write in
my journal every day. I'd like to start a blog so I will be able
to share my experience and thoughts online. Please let me know if you have any ideas or tips for brand new aspiring blog owners.

Howdy! Do you know if they make any plugins to protect against hackers?
I'm kinda paranoid about losing everything I've worked hard on.

Any recommendations?

The house I familiar with reside in had anything
such as this within the basement. It had been great. I miss
it inside my brand new home.

Nor would most Americans work for the low wages paid.

When you are designing a vacation, one of the most important
considerations is most likely the budget. Are really the area settlers
happy to see foreigners? An individual cannot choose
Philippine Boracay's white beach sand and also under accommodation of a expensive hotel if you are in a
very tight budget. These clubs even provide wellness clubs,
spa and fine eating eateries in picturesque settings. commented on 29-Jan-2014 11:14 AM
What does anyone know about this? I think there's a lot more to the concept

My spouse and I absolutely love your blog and find nearly all of your
post's to be exactly I'm looking for. Do you offer guest writers to write
content for you? I wouldn't mind creating a post or elaborating on a few of the subjects you write
in relation to here. Again, awesome website!

Hello just wanted to give you a quick heads up. The text
in your article seem to be running off the screen in Ie.
I'm not sure if this is a formatting 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 problem solved soon. Cheers commented on 29-Jan-2014 04:12 PM
Great blog here! Also your site so much up fast! What web host are you the usage of?

Can I get your affiliate link for your host? I wish my site loaded up as
fast as yours lol commented on 29-Jan-2014 04:57 PM
I just saw something about this on television. It spoke the same things you wrote
I go to university in Canada and we just learned about this in our class.

Thanks for helping me with the final part of my report.
Thanks for the outline of television stuff.
I absolutely think that cable television is going to go away.
Or at a minimum have to change with the times.

Internet television is definitely the wave of the future. As internet speeds get
faster, people will be watching their shows on sites like this.

What does anybody know about this? I don't think there's a lot more to the subject
I was just watching this on PBS yesterday. They spoke the same things you
wrote about.

Hi just wanted to give you a quick heads up
and let you know a few of the pictures aren't loading properly.
I'm not sure why but I think its a linking issue. I've tried
it in two different web browsers and both show the same results.
