Pennsylvania One Book is a statewide initiative that promotes the importance of early literacy development for young children. Since 2006, a book is selected annually by a committee of early childhood educators, librarians and museum educators. The selected book encourages children’s imaginations and love of reading.
Carnegie Library of Pittsburgh participates on the state-level committee and provides related professional development to Pittsburgh-area librarians and educators. Children’s Specialists at libraries across the city create and provide special storytimes based on the selected books. Through this initiative, we create a community of readers and celebrate young children.
We hope you’ll join us at a PA one Book Storytime in your neighborhood!
