What are Literacy Kits?

Early Literacy Kits are designed for pre-readers, and focus on developing literacy skills through sharing concepts like words, rhymes, sounds, songs, and more. Early Literacy Kits were built on the 7 Days, 7 Ways to Read principles.

These kits are available ONLY by placing a HOLD. Only adults can check out Early Literacy Kits. Please read the Early Literacy Kit policy here.

We will email you when your Literacy Kit is available to be checked out.

Literacy Kits were made possible by a grant from Altrusa Orlando-Winter Park.
