Fostering early literacy is not just about reading books to children. It’s about interaction! Creating an interactive space in the library encourages parents and caregivers and children to spend time together doing a fun activity. Whether your interactive space is teeny tiny and temporary or large and long-lived, interactive spaces can enhance the development of important literacy skills.
Here are some interactive spaces around the state:
- Almena City Library
- Arkansas City Public Library
- Library District #2 of Linn County–La Cygne, KS’s Early Literacy Space
- Norcatur Public Library
- Norton Public Library
