Read With Me

Summer reading for our youngest customers: Ages birth to 5

As your child's first and most important teacher, it's never to early to put your child on a path to success. The best way to do this is to sing, talk and read to your child starting at birth.

DC Public Library offers a specially designed summer reading program for children birth to five years old with their parent or care giver.

Win prizes while fostering a love of reading with your child.

Visit your library to sign up and receive a game board filled with fun activities that will help your child get ready to learn to read.
