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 offered 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.
