Birth to Five Literacy Support Network Hubs

Birth to Five Literacy Support Network Hubs support communities across Michigan so that children, families, and educators can have equitable access to materials, training, and other resources for literacy development.

The Literacy Support Network Hubs are made up of partners from across the community who are working to improve literacy for children age birth to five years old. Partners include schools, libraries, Great Start Collaboratives, Great Start to Quality Resource Centers, child care programs, home visiting programs, local businesses, philanthropic groups, non-profits, faith-based organizations, and other organizations.
