1000 Books Before Kindergarten
Reading at an early age greatly benefits a child's development and allows you to bond with your child. Teaneck Library encourages you to join the 1000 Books Before Kindergarten initiative. Children from birth to age 5 (and their parents) can sign up at Teaneck Library and read any time, anywhere. (Any books-- re-reading counts!) Visit Teaneck.org for more information and suggested booklists.
Early Literacy Station
The Friends purchased an Early Literacy Station for the Children's Department. This dynamic all-in-one digital learning station for children ages 3 to 8 features more than 60 educational software titles spanning seven curricular areas. It is easy and fun for children to use.
This gift was made possible in part by donations made in memory of Patrick Crowley, who, along with his wife, Jane Erwin, was a long-time and active supporter of the Friends.
