Family Literacy Library Services Program
The Family Literacy Library Services Program helps library systems and libraries provide family literacy services to children and their parents or caregivers. The program theme for 2016-2019 is "Ready to Read at New York Libraries through Public Library Systems." Participating public library systems work to increase the number of member libraries with the expertise and resources to assist families with young children in developing the early literacy skills needed to succeed in the school years ahead. Projects should focus on training library staff in all five components of the Ready to Read at New York: Early Childhood Public Library Staff Development Program as well as assist member libraries in creating plans and implementing projects based on the skills learned through this staff development program.
