Welcome to our Little Bluebirds Club!

This free program provides the opportunity to engage in activities with your child to help early literacy development and school readiness before he or she enters kindergarten.  It is shown that children with well developed early literacy skills have greater success learning to read and generally have greater success throughout their school years.

The foundation of this program consists of five categories: Read, Play, Talk, Write, Sing.  You and your child will complete activities of your choosing in these categories.  Something as simple as singing your favorite song in the car counts as an activity completed.
Let’s get started!

  • Each time you complete an activity in a set category fill in your circle.
  • Once you have all of your circles in all five categories filled in bring your sheet to library.
    • Your child will receive a free book for each completed sheet.
    • Collect your next sheet for your next set of 50 activities.
  • After finishing all 10 sheets your child will receive a special certificate and a book.  By the end of the program your child will have received 11 books.
