Core Principles of WCPL Programs

Every Child Ready to Read

Every Child Ready to Read ® @ your library ® is a nationally recognized program that supports parents and caregivers with the early literacy development of their children. By talking, singing, reading, writing and playing we instill reading and school-ready skills.

Every Reader Ready to Succeed

Programs for school-aged children are designed to engage, entertain, and educate. Programs are designed to nurture the love of reading, reinforce literacy skills and encourage creative thinking.

Every Family Ready to Achieve

Offers opportunities for families to achieve their greatest potential through access to library books, programs and services. EFRA's goals are to deliver programs and services that increase a variety of literacy skills at any age, to cultivate an environment of learning with the library, to connect families with resources to enhance their lives and to provide enrichment experiences for families.
