The Coraopolis Memorial Library is introducing a new series of "literacy kits" for children aged birth to 2 years old.
The kits are aimed at giving parents and caregivers a head start in teaching their children to read, according to a library announcement.
Each kit contains eight picture books, flashcards and a puppet as well as handouts for parents and caregivers.
The kits are available this month and can be borrowed from the library for three week-periods with any valid Allegheny County Library System card.
Letter knowledge, narrative skills and vocabulary are a few of the skills each kit works to develop. The kits are funded through a grant from the Eden Hall Foundation.
