Read early and often.

One Book Every Young Child

Through Pennsylvania's One Book, Every Young Child program, adults with preschoolers ages 3 to 6 discover opportunities to read aloud and share books, stories, and related activities with preschoolers.

Throughout the year, the library hosts events including author and illustrator visits; programming for families; activities for parents, early child care providers, and educators; and visits from state government VIPs who read to young children.

One Book, Every Young Child has been developed by librarians and museum educators from across Pennsylvania to promote the value and benefits of reading early and often to preschoolers and to encourage family bonding through books and reading.

The program is made possible through a collaboration of the Pennsylvania Department of Education, Pennsylvania Department of Public Welfare, Children's Museum of Pittsburgh, Please Touch Museum, and State Museum of Pennsylvania, Pennsylvania Library Association, Pennsylvania Center for the Book, Pennsylvania Association for the Education of Young Children, The Pennsylvania Child Care Association, Pennsylvania's Promise for Children and PennSERVE.
