Children’s Library: Example Program for the Future

The BCPL developed a children’s library model called Storyville. It was designed to foster early literacy and school readiness skills. It was developed specifically for children birth to five.

We know through scientific research that success in school begins at birth and that the ages of birth to five are critical learning years. For this reason, we recommend this model as a beginning point. It is for librarians who are looking to be innovative with their children’s service.
