Dive into Reading Goes Virtual

Thanks to donations to the Long Beach Public Library Foundation, the Dive into Reading early literacy program for families with children ages 0-5 is relaunching virtually. The live online launch event on August 29 at 10:30 a.m. on the Library’s Facebook page will include a craft workshop for children to make their own musical instruments and a bilingual musical performance. Schedule a pick-up of your child’s craft kit while supplies last by calling the Library at (562) 570-7500 from 10:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m., Tuesday – Saturday.

Dive into Reading guides parents and guardians as they read 1,000 books to their children before kindergarten and raise life-long readers. The virtual version of the program includes online book trackers for parents and guardians and prizes for families that reach reading milestones.
