The Chetwynd Public Library has adopted the Every Child Ready to Read program, an early childhood literacy program developed by the American Library Association (ALA).

The Every Child Ready to Read program is modeled in the library’s programs through songs, stories, rhymes, and activities. Each week, library staff will demonstrate different techniques that will help your child get ready to read.
