Hedberg Public Library encourages literacy with story time program.  (Janesville Gazette, 4/24/2016)
"Early literacy is a big part of everything we do at the library," Dietrich said. "It's mostly getting them ready to read. That can mean getting the kids excited about reading and working on all those little skills that most people are doing anyway, but maybe not realizing the connection. It is so important for children beginning to read to point out words in the book and what they are and all those little things that we can share with the parents in story time. We give them suggestions of things they can do at home."
