Library Launches New Literacy Week Program

The Southlake Library is launching it’s first-ever Early Literacy Week Program for preschool-aged children.

The Library staff created a week of fun and engaging programs to help instill a love of reading at an early age with an emphasis on literacy. The program offers several stimulating classes and hands-on activities.

Youth Services Librarian Stacy Wells says, “The new program grew out of the Library’s participation in the Read Across America Day Initiative which takes place nationally on March 2, Dr. Suess’s birthday. We wanted to create a week-long program to encourage  literacy and reading, especially among our youngest readers.”

Below is the list of activities the Library has scheduled for the week of March 5, 2018.
