Well, thanks to grant funds from IMLS, the program will be expanding!  Learn all about how they used texts to promote literacy and what's coming up for 2021 by registering for Tuesday's free webinar:

2:00 PM ET - Library of Michigan
In October 2017, the Ypsilanti District Library launched TALK: Text and Learn for Kindergarten, an early literacy text messaging service, with LSTA grant funding. With the support of community partners, the successful project reached over 1,000 families across Washtenaw County via text, offering activities parents could do with children 5 and under to prepare them for school and beyond. Find out more about this pilot project that may become available to libraries statewide in 2021. The webinar link will be emailed to registered attendees the day before the event. This webinar will be recorded and shared with registrants. It is brought to you by the Library of Michigan and supported in part by the Institute of Museum and Library Services.
