How to Raise a Reader

The West Bloomfield Township Public Library partners with parents to help raise children who love to read and read to learn.

Learning to read begins before children start school. From the time they are infants, children develop language and other early literacy skills that will help them learn to read. Grow Up Reading™ will give parents ideas and information on helping prepare their child for lifelong learning.

Raise your child to be a reader with help from the West Bloomfield Township Public Library. The library can show you how to nurture your child's literacy skills - even before he or she enrolls in school. It's never too early to start so come on in today .
