Bay County Libraries Begin Early Childhood Language Development Program

Article Summary:

Serving Bay City and other towns north of Saginaw, Michigan, the Bay County Library System is preparing to recruit 120 families for its very first LENA Start program.

“Nothing like this has been done in our region. As an area that bridges the gap between rural and small urban areas, we will be able to reach several populations that have been traditionally underserved,” said Danielle DiAmico, children’s librarian at Sage Branch Library. “It’s wonderful to be able to build school readiness and strengthen families at the same time.”
