Early Learning Calendar

Read! Talk! Write! Play! Sing! Count!

Available in both English and Spanish! Click for a digital copy or pick one up at the library.


February Early Learning Tip - Reading together with your child is the single most important activity to help your child get ready to read. Engaging them in back and forth conversations and giving them the opportunity to respond to questions about the books you read will help them learn more words!

Please call us or email info@moablibrary.org with any questions. We are here to help.


Be excellent to each other!
