Resources for Early Learning

Literary resources for the youngest Library patrons and their families

In every community, Chicago Public Library supports parents of young children 0 – 5 years with books, interactive toys, games and guidance to propel children’s language development and early literacy skills. The Library’s approach, designed to promote evidence-based practices, encourages parents to talk and read with their children and create ample opportunities for play.
