A to Z with Percy!

Welcome, future kindergarteners & families!

Percy Reads

We’re excited to introduce our new Kindergarten Readiness series. Our 26-week email series will introduce your preschooler to one letter of the alphabet each week in a video recorded by our early learning experts, the Children’s Librarians you know and love!

Each email will also introduce a core concept, such as a color, number, or shape, along with an important “soft” skill to help your child succeed in school — things like holding up your hand to ask a question, zipping your jacket, and opening your juice box on your own.

Sign up now!

If you miss an email, don’t worry — you can find the full series below, along with other great early learning resources from your Delaware County District Library.
