News from Greater West Central Public Library District

Greater West Central Public Library District with libraries in Augusta, Bowen, Golden, Littleton, and Plymouth are now featuring monthly Early Literacy Play Kits. Play is an integral component of developing reading readiness. Play is included as one of the five early literacy practices according to “Every Child Ready to Read.”

Play is a fun, developmentally appropriate way for children to map concepts to words. Out activity tubs that will be traveling around our libraries include: cars and trucks, trains and other transportation, paper crafts, legos, and play doh. We encourage parents to stop by the library and spend some time playing with your child helping them learn about new things, as well as what those things do.
