Every Child Ready to Read at Your Library

Developed by the Public Library Association in conjunction with the National Institute of Child Health and Human Development, Every Child Ready to Read is designed to give parents and caregivers tools they can use to help their children learn important pre-reading skills that will make it easier for them when they start school. For more information, call the library at 910-692-8235.

Outreach Services

In addition to storytimes inside the library, staff visit preschools and childcare centers in Southern Pines on a monthly basis.  Using methods from the  Every Child Ready to Read program, library staff work with students and staff from 18 childcare facilities.  During the 2015-2016 school year, an average of 378 children and 62 adults were seen each month (from September to May).

For more information about outreach services of the library visit the Southern Pines Grows Great Readers page.

Digital Libraries for Kids

In addition to the electronic books and electronic audiobooks for adults, SPPL has access to the NCDL eReading Room for Kids and the NC Kids Digital Library.  All you need is a library card and a PIN to enjoy these resources!
