Come discover six pre-reading skills your child can start learning now.  Early literacy skills are what children know about reading and writing before they can actually read and write.  Parents are their child's first teacher and research shows that children get ready to read years before they start school.  Register at the Adult Information Desk or call (562) 904-7360, ext. 132.
