Fairfax County Public Library established the Early Literacy Services Program in 2004. This program emphasizes the skills and concepts needed for school readiness and strives to connect teachers and families to the library resources that will help prepare young children for reading and writing. Library staff and volunteers present early literacy storytimes directly to preschool children (age 4-5) in child care centers, preschools, family child care homes and Head Start classrooms. The program also offers teacher workshops to demonstrate strategies when using library books and other literacy-based materials.
