Hope all had a happy and safe holiday. Just a quick reminder that the Library will be closed on January the 3rd in observance of New Year. Did you know that children prepare to read long before they enter school — early literacy is everything children know about reading and writing before they can actually read and write. early literacy is a baby that looks at the book, a toddler who wants his/her favorite book read over and over, and the preschooler who “reads” the story to you from memory. Story Time will begin in January at the Clearwater Public Library, let us help you with your child’s early literacy.
