Fountaindale Public Library District has an Outreach staff member dedicated to visiting almost 20 preschools and day cares within the Library District each month. In addition to reading books, story times include interactive songs and activities which help promote early literacy. Besides just visiting day cares and preschools, Fountaindale’s Outreach staff present public story times and other programs for children 0-5 years old. Information for parents and teachers of elementary and homeschool students in the Fountaindale Public Library District is available here.
