Williamsport — Early learning opportunities for children are available through local libraries, offering opportunities to improve communication with other children, expand language skills, or simply enjoy a fun, social activity.

Children who are actively engaged in learning grow into engaged citizens. The library supports the PA Forward statewide initiative, which believes that when Pennsylvania residents improve their command of five types of literacy – basic, information, civic and social, health and financial – they can achieve greater success as students, parents, employees, consumers, as citizens.
Libraries are community centers of information, technology and learning that will fuel educational and economic opportunity for all citizens.
Registration is suggested for in-person programs because of supply limitations. Registration is available at calendar.jvbrown.edu or by calling (570) 326-0536.
