The Inglewood Public Library has announced that it will provide weekly literacy programs for youngsters ages 0 to 5 years and their parents/caregivers. The program will run from Oct. 2 through Nov. 22.

Early Literacy for Families or (ELF) is a family centered program dedicated to help families with young children to develop their mind to be successful in school. A parent is considered the child’s most important teacher, mentor, and inspiration.

ELF’s purpose is to help teach children by reading, speaking, and singing to them from the time they are born providing a spectacular boost to their vocabulary, language, reading, writing, math and other skills essential for school.

To help young learners become ready to comprehend, ELF is will use a selection of materials, such as books, flannel board music, movement, repetition, and playtime. ELF Inglewood will give families the opportunity to develop together and interact with qualified staff employees on a weekly basis to promote literacy for these impressionable youths.

The main library is located at 101 W. Manchester Blvd, and the Crenshaw-Imperial Branch at 11141 Crenshaw Blvd. For more information, call (310) 412-5645 or (310) 412-5403.
