Ready to Read Michigan


The libraries of the Early Childhood Literacy Coalition are hosting Ready to Read Michigan workshops this Fall for early childcare providers. All types of early childhood service providers are welcome, including administration, center based staff, group home providers, family providers, license-exempt providers, and school staff. There is no cost to attend.

Building on the strengths and experiences of early childhood care providers, these fun workshops explore practical strategies for using songs, rhymes, and books with the children in their care in order to build and strengthen early literacy skills. Youth services librarians will share their knowledge and love of books and rhymes, to help care providers expand their offerings. Participants will receive handouts and materials to take away, courtesy of the libraries and WKAR.
