The Children’s Department is happy to announce the launch of their eight Early Literacy Fun Packs! These backpacks are filled with books and activities targeting the five early literacy skills, Reading, Writing, Singing, Playing and Talking. Each backpack includes books, a music CD, a Magic Board, and toys related to a theme. An Activity Guide for the parent or caregiver is also included, which consists of activities, songs, and games that help support early literacy skills at home. The eight themes include Alphabet, Bears, Bedtime, Colors, Counting, Farm, Five Senses, and Shapes. You can find the Early Literacy Fun Packs in the Children’s Room at the circulation desk. The backpacks can be checked out for one week at a time and can be placed on hold by Wilmington patrons. Stop by the library today and check out a Fun Pack!
