NEW Writing Center

We are proud to introduce our new Writing Center in the Children's Department of the Tredyffrin Library.

This Writing Center supports our commitment to the nationally sponsored Every Child Ready to Read program. Reading and writing go hand in hand as they both represent language and communication. This center provides your child with the tools to draw and write. Talk to your children about what they are writing or drawing. This communication is teaching your child to make the connection between the spoken word and printed language.

Visit our writing center with your child and help them practice writing letters on lined and unlined chalkboards, writing on lined paper, as well as coloring pages and puzzles.

We do have guidelines for using the Writing Center.
1. Please stay with your child while they are using the writing center.
2. Ask at the desk for crayons and chalk.
3. Please do not let your child write on the desk.
4. Talk with your child about what they are writing and enjoy!

Early literacy begins with you and your local library.
