Early childhood literacy is a critical part of a child's development that can have important impacts as they start school and beyond.  KSJD's Tom Yoder talks with Cortez Public Library Director Eric Ikenouye and Children's Librarian Laura McHenry about how the library  is working with local organizations and parents to make sure young children are exposed to books, reading, and vocabulary that will give them a solid foundation for learning as they grow.
