Kansas City, Kansas Public Library’s Growing Readers Program is the first step in lifelong literacy for your child. Reading to your young child helps set them up for a lifetime of academic success.

This week, we are highlighting some staff favorites, including favorite picture books and favorite songs and finger plays! The South Branch has Storytime To-Go kits available for pickup on this theme and many others. Visit us Monday through Friday between 9am and 5pm to request one through curbside pickup!

If you are the parent of a baby or toddler, you can also request a Growing Readers packet containing information on early literacy and a free book for your child to keep!
