Early Literacy Info Guide

Early Literacy at Winnipeg Public Library

At Winnipeg Public Library we are here to help strengthen the early literacy skills of the children in our communities.

This section of our site is designed to be your go-to source for information about early literacy and what you can do to support the development of strong early literacy skills.

You will also find basic information about the brain development of infants and young children and why the first few years of life are so important for future learning. You will learn about the 5 early literacy practices and how to pick great books to support the development of early literacy skills.

And, of course, we have information about the Library's Pre-School Programs that are designed - with all this information in mind - to help you give children a great start. For literacy, reading, programming and other Library information for children/teens of all ages, visit the Parents and Caregivers section of our website.
