Ready to Read Michigan

The Library of Michigan’s Ready to Read Michigan program is designed to support public library staff as they model early literacy skill development directly to families and caregivers with young children (ages birth to 5).  The Ready to Read Michigan program supports public libraries as they engage in outreach to families and caregivers, as well as early childhood centers, schools, and daycares in their community.

This program is an inclusive, literacy based one for all ages that includes reproducible materials, a variety of online resources, and a unified theme, including artwork.
