Program 1

Every Child Ready to Read & Books to You

Early Literacy: Every Child Ready to Read
Current research on early literacy and brain development indicates that it is never too early to prepare children for success as readers. Parents and caregivers of newborns, toddlers and preschoolers must be informed of their critical role as their children's first teacher.

Support from the Imagine Campaign will allow us to begin working towards the goal of getting books and information into the hand of every new mother in St. Charles County. 

For those individuals that aren’t able to make it to the library, we are able to bring the library to them through our Books to You Program.  This is a completely volunteer driven program that provides homebound individuals, as well as nursing homes and assisted living centers, books to enjoy. 

Volunteers are paired up with homebound individuals to bring them different selections from the library on a regular basis.  Betty, one of the program’s recipients, has macular degeneration and her failing eyesight prevents her from driving.  Every month a volunteer picks out books on CD from the Deer Run Library and brings them to her.  As Betty says, “Oh, it is just wonderful; you get books plus a visit and a chat!” 

Support from the Imagine Campaign will allow us to increase and improve our outreach services to support those in need all across St. Charles County.
