We are committed to literacy in all its forms.
Early literacy begins with our youngest readers, who learn to enjoy the sounds of storytelling, the rhythms of poetry and the fun of interacting with caregivers. Learn how BCLS encourages little ones to develop skills early by setting a reading goal of 1,000 books before kindergarten.
Literacy programs also help people assimilate into the culture-at-large by mastering a new language or learning the basics of conversation. Visit the library's website to discover ongoing English as a Second Language programs.
