The San Antonio Public Library’s early literacy program is designed to support the development of young children’s love of books, reading and learning. SAPL staff provide foundational literacy information and materials to parents, extended family, and caregivers of children ages birth-five years. Services are provided free of charge at public libraries, childcare facilities, schools and community-based organizations. The mission is to empower the San Antonio community with an increased awareness of, and the tools to support, early literacy skills.
