What We Provide for Preschool Teachers

We work closely with teachers at all of the Park Ridge schools by providing access to supplemental classroom materials, supporting the curriculum, and collaborating on programs that develop information literacy skills and a love of learning and reading.

Reading Clubs

We have a reading club for every child and every season. Join our reading clubs to be a part of a reading community and earn patches, stickers, prizes, and more!
