We post an Early Literacy Calendar each month, published by the Public Library Association. Each day of the month has ideas to help you share early literacy skills with your child, and each month also features a song, nursery rhyme, finger play, and book recommendations. Printed copies are available to pick up at the library, or you can view and print  the calendar using this pdf: October Early Literacy Calendar
