"Public Libraries can also act as economic equalizers in the community, offering free books and services to all ages, and providing literacy-rich opportunities to children who might otherwise miss out." Teale, 1999, Fiore, 2001, McGill, 2003, Bohrer, 2005, Martinez, 2007.
"Libraries foster literacy, especially among pre-school and elementary age children. A study has found that children exposed to a library program develop literacy behaviors and better pre-reading skills." "The Role of Libraries in Children's Literacy Development," Dr. Donna Celano and Dr. Susan B. Neuman
"Children's literacy is greatly improved by access to library programs." Emmily Bristol
