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 Early Literacy Kit is available to be checked out. Early Literacy Kits were made possible by a grant from Altrusa Orlando-Winter Park.

The Sunshine State Young Readers Award (SSYRA) Program is a statewide reading motivational program for students in grades K through 8, sponsored by the Florida Department of Education (DOE) and Florida Association for Media in Education (FAME). The purpose of the SSYRA Program is to encourage students to read independently for pleasure and to read books that are on, above, and below their reading level in order to improve their reading fluency. Sunshine State books are selected for their wide appeal, literary value, varied genres, curriculum connections, and/or multicultural representation. The SSYRA committee is comprised of 20 qualified school librarians located throughout the state of Florida. CLICK TO SEE THIS YEAR’S LISTS.
