Ready to Read Early Literacy Programs & Services

Ready to Read logo FULL COLOR

The West Fargo Public Library’s Ready to Read initiative is made up of a handful of programs with one common goal - to help children in West Fargo be ready to read and succeed in school before they head to Kindergarten. 

Through Ready to Read, children under the age of five build basic early literacy skills through reading, writing, talking, singing and playing in a safe, fun and social environment. The Ready to Read program also helps adults to learn how to support their child’s education from home.

Storytimes

The West Fargo Public Library offers two public storytimes weekly at the library to help build early literacy skills in children in a fun, safe and encouraging space. Learn more about storytimes.

Daycare Visits & Deliveries

The library helps ensure every child at local daycares is ready to read and succeed in school through daycare book deliveries, special daycare storytimes and other partnerships with local daycares. Learn more about daycare visits, storytimes and book deliveries.

My First Library Card Program

A library card opens a world of opportunity for children while giving them ownership of their library experience. Having their own card makes visiting the library and picking out books tons of fun too! The West Fargo Public Library's My First Library Card program is set to launch Wednesday, Nov. 17 at our Ready to Read Program Launch Party!
