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.”

Appreciating the time and effort you put into your
website and detailed information you present.

It's good to come across a blog every once in a while that isn't the same old rehashed information.
Excellent read! I've bookmarked your site and I'm including your RSS feeds to my Google account.

First off I would like to say wonderful blog! I had a quick question which I'd like to ask if you do not mind.

I was curious to find out how you center yourself
and clear your mind before writing. I have had difficulty clearing my mind in
getting my thoughts out there. I truly do take pleasure in writing but it just seems like the
first 10 to 15 minutes are usually lost just trying to figure out how to begin.
Any recommendations or tips? Many thanks!

be running off the screen in Opera. I'm not sure if this is a formatting issue or something to do with web browser compatibility but
I thought I'd post to let you know. The design look great though!
Hope you get the problem resolved soon. Cheers. you can easily buy youtube views, youtube subscribers/views and YouTube views and comments.

This design is incredible! You most certainly know how to keep a reader entertained.
Between your wit and your videos, I was almost moved to start my own blog (well, almost...HaHa!) Great job.

I really loved what you had to say, and more than that, how you
presented it. Too cool!

Hi! I know this is kinda off topic however I'd figured
I'd ask. Would you be interested in exchanging links or maybe
guest writing a blog post or vice-versa? My blog goes over a lot of the same subjects as yours
and I think we could greatly benefit from each other. If you might be interested feel
free to send me an email. I look forward to
hearing from you! Excellent blog by the way!

I'll check back later and see if the problem still exists.

Good day! I know this is somewhat off topic but I was wondering if you knew where I could locate a captcha plugin for
my comment form? I'm using the same blog platform as yours and I'm having problems finding one?
Thanks a lot!

Hi! I just wanted to ask if you ever have any issues with hackers?
My last blog (wordpress) was hacked and I ended up losing many months of hard work due to no
backup. Do you have any methods to prevent hackers?
