Early Learning Public Library Partnership

Public libraries are full, essential partners in the early learning movement in Washington State.


The Early Learning Public Library Partnership strengthens the ability of public libraries to fully participate in the advancement of early learning in Washington State.

  1. The public libraries are recognized by early learning professionals, decision makers and the public for their work in early learning.
  2. Public libraries are members of local and statewide early learning coalitions throughout Washington State.
  3. Public libraries continue to grow resources for early learning services and influence in the Washington State Early Learning Community.
