ABSTRACT
The article offers a history of the Every Child Ready to Read @ your library (ECRR) program. The importance of early childhood experiences involving emergent literacy is discussed. Collaboration between the Public Library Association (PLA) and the Association for Library Service to Children (ALSC) to develop an emergent literacy curriculum for parents and caregivers to support early literacy is explored. The components of ECRR, three case studies involving the program's implementation, and the process of evaluating the program are also presented.
