Portland Public Library’s early literacy initiative Every Child Ready to Read @ Your Library ® is a project of the Association for Library Service to Children and the Public Library Association (divisions of the American Library Association.) This parent education initiative stresses that early literacy begins with the primary adult in a child’s life. Developing early literacy skills has a long-term impact on children’s reading achievement and academic success.
