Libraries build a foundation for children’s future success starting from the earliest stages of development. Librarians play a key role in helping children develop the basic tools for school readiness by teaching families the components of early literacy. GCPL provides access and programs for students of all ages. For preschool–age children, we offer early literacy resources and storytimes to encourage school readiness.
There’s really something for everyone, and it’s all free with a library card. To sign up for a library card, visit your local branch or click the button below.
