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.”

With havin so much content and articles do you ever run into any
problems of plagorism or copyright violation?
My site has a lot of completely unique content I've either created myself or
outsourced but it seems a lot of it is popping it up
all over the internet without my authorization. Do
you know any methods to help stop content from being stolen?

I'd definitely appreciate it. coupon commented on 04-Feb-2014 10:29 AM

You know her inside and out, and you can use this to your
advantage. If your ex boyfriend sees you as someone who is attempting hard to improve herself and correct
her mistake, he is going to come back to you again.
There are lots of information provided by those experts that answers questions asked by ladies
interested in getting their ex back. Since I wasn't a member, I
decided to snowshoe alone.
