Early Learning and Literacy in Libraries

Colorado State Library Early Learning and Literacy

Helping libraries prepare all children in Colorado to be

Ready to Read, Ready to Learn and Ready to Thrive.

The Colorado State Library (CSL) is a unit of the Colorado Department of Education serving all libraries in Colorado. Along with a variety of initiatives, CSL offers early literacy support from the office of Literacy and Youth Services.

Colorado has a vision for the education of our youth, and libraries are perfectly positioned to carry this out. We support the education (and wellbeing) of children, teens and families by coordinating statewide initiatives for early literacy, summer learning, outdoor experiences, and other campaigns.

We study, host statewide conversations, form partnerships, and offer resources and training so Colorado library professionals can maximize your early literacy service with confidence and pride.
