The A-B-C Read to Me program is conducted in partnership with Johnson Memorial Health to encourage the spread of early childhood literacy skills in Johnson County.

JCPL is institutionally committed to the development of early literacy, and the A-B-C Read to Me program is one of many ways we support that goal. Early literacy is essential for the development of reading and learning skills in children and can begin as soon as children are born. 

A-B-C Read to Me volunteers visit new parents at Johnson Memorial Hospital and give them board books and library materials that guide parents through introducing early literacy skills to their children.
