The Otsego District Library is excited to announce the new program 1000 Books Before Kindergarten, along with ten other Allegan County Libraries!
ODL is leading the way on this program for Allegan County. The Allegan County Library Association has partnered with the Allegan County United Way and Volunteer Center. The Allegan County United Way and Volunteer Center has given a $7000 grant to fund supplies for the children of Allegan County for five years!
Developing literacy skills begins at birth and continues through toddler and preschool years. The best way to ensure a child has the skills necessary to learn to read is having someone read aloud to them. A well written picture book is three times richer in vocabulary than conversation. Talk, sing, read, write, and play with your child to help them get ready to read. Visiting the library with your child also helps instill the excitement for reading into their life!
