Dayton Metro Library will extend its successful "Love Them Out Loud" (LTOL) kits, with the design, development and creation of an early literacy kit for children ages 24-48 months. Informed by area health partners, literacy experts, librarians, educators, and designers, the kits will include picture books, educational toys, and early learning resources for parents. The kits will be distributed to low-income families with children in the critical toddler/preschool development stage through the library or other trusted community partners, such as parenting educators, WIC centers, daycares, preschools, and local health care facilities. Intended to guide parents in appropriate steps to encourage literacy and instill a love of learning for the child, the kits will be made available to libraries across the nation.
