Read, sing, talk , play and write with your young child this summer for
Lafayette Public Library’s summer reading program for
early learners, ages birth-five.

Track the number of activities you share with your child online or at the library. Visit the library to pick up an activity log with ideas or download one using the link in the menu on the left side of this page.

Sharing books, songs and rhymes with very young children helps them to be ready to read when they are older.

Play is important, provide
opportunities for imaginative play and join in on the fun!

Read. When children see the important people in their lives
reading they will think reading is important too!
