Early Literacy

Early literacy is what children know about communication, language—verbal and non-verbal—reading and writing before they can actually read and write.

Thematic Book Bags

These book bags contain books on various topics. This is perfect kit for teachers who teach by themes and parents/caregivers with children who love certain subjects.

All book bags have between 10-20 books, and sets with more than one kit have many of the same titles. These kits are not available at any branch; you must put them on hold. To place on hold, click on a book bag’s title. This will take you to the library catalog.

Level 1 Book Bags for Beginning Readers

These kits are great for children who are beginning to read. Want to see even more titles? Visit your neighborhood library branch and ask to see "ducky books."
