Regular visits to the library has significant impact to the emergent literacy skills of children. This is the perfect place to instill in them the genuine love for reading, have opportunities to discover a wide-range of books and hone their language and social skills. They will learn the basic library etiquette, such as using inside voice and walking feet, returning books to re-shelving carts, etc. The children will be encouraged to respect the use of library materials, furnishings and equipment. Most importantly, they will be exposed to hundreds of interesting books and countless amazing stories, poems, songs and fingerplays while having an enjoyable time!
