Do You Know When the Majority of a Child's Brain Development Happens?

by:

Fact: More than 90 percent of brain development happens between the ages of birth and five. 

Reading aloud to babies and toddlers promotes positive brain development and helps to build important pre-reading skills. That's why JCPL provides thousands of early-literacy storytimes every year. By doing so, we help our youngest residents get the best possible start in life. This year, the Library Foundation is raising money to support the following storytime opportunities:

  • Baby and Toddler storytimes
  • Traveling Children's Library
  • American Sign Language Storytimes
  • Start with a Story 

Give the gift of reading to every child. Donate now…
