Check out this infographic I found today. It’s based on a research study I recently read by Susan Neuman and Donna Celano. Visiting the library can really help play a role in the future of a child. If purchasing books for full price is not an option, make visiting the library an every day or every week occurrence. Visit storytime weekly. Take part in children’s programming. Spend time reading aloud (or if you have older children silently together) for at least 15 minutes each time you visit the library. Let your child explore the library. Let them listen to books on CD or through digital download. Check out the Friends of the Library monthly book sales. Books will make a difference in the life of a child.
