Ready to Read Michigan

  • Ready to Read Michigan

    The Library of Michigan’s Ready to Read Michigan program is designed to support public library staff as they model early literacy skill development directly to families and caregivers with young children (ages birth to 5).  The Ready to Read Michigan program supports public libraries as they engage in outreach to families and caregivers, as well as early childhood centers, schools, and daycares in their community.

    Public Libraries can take summer – and year-round reading – to another level!  Manage your public library reading programs and increase engagement through Wandoo Reader.  With expanded “challenges,” game-like features, and multiple themes, you can engage people of all ages. Wandoo Reader allows you to build programs around experiences, in addition to more-traditional logging activities, like tracking books and minutes.  Public Library Directors should contact Cathy Lancaster, Youth Services Coordinator at the Library of Michigan, for details at This program is supported in part by the Institute of Museum and Library Services.
