PostHeaderIcon 6 by 6 Kicks Off on Tuesday!

Scott County Library Children’s Department is excited to kick off the statewide early literacy initiative, 6 by 6!!

What is 6 by 6? This program emphasizes the six skills that parents and caregivers can help children develop before they learn to read, at about the age of 6.

The 6 by 6 program was created by the Johnson County Library and adopted by the State Library of Kansas to promote statewide.

6 by 6 is funded by a grant from the Scott Community Foundation along with materials provided by the State Library of Kansas.

What does 6 by 6 do for you?  It provides parents and caregivers with fun ideas, activities and reading material to share with their children.  Thanks to the grant, we are able to provide paperback books to each child who attends our weekly programming.  We were also able to purchase educational items to put together early literacy kits.  These kits touch on the different areas that help little minds build learning skills.

Click on our 6 by 6 drop down under the Childrens Tab to see our weekly activites and learn more about getting your child ready to read!
