Pueblo of Pojoaque

Log Number: NG-03-09-0217-09

The Pueblo of Pojoaque Public Library project will focus on literacy skills for preschool children and school-age children through the third grade as well as their parents, using the Every Child Ready to Read @ Your Library (ECRR) program. The ECRR defines specific prereading and early reading skills that can be developed through the story time experience. The Pojoaque “Hearing Our Stories and Building Our World” project will provide story times at the library for young children and will expand to three other sites on the pueblo to ensure that as many tribal children as possible will be read to on a regular basis. Monthly workshops to encourage parents and caregivers to read to their children will be presented at the library and as outreach programs when requested by other tribal libraries.
