In this special six session series, families enjoy stories  & activities designed to encourage the development of  early learning practices. Exploring literacy, science,  & math through music, stories, art, & play will help you & your child get ready for school!  Families will receive free materials to continue the learning and fun at home. For children ages 3-5 and their caregivers.

Ready, Set, Kindergarten! is a program of BPL’s First Five Years initiative and is supported by generous funding from The Pinkerton Foundation, The Edith Glick Shoolman Children’s Foundation and the NY City Council. Additional support is provided by the Brooklyn Eagles—a group of young and engaged supporters of Brooklyn Public Library, and funds raised at BPL’s annual Gala.

In 1997, the library moved to its new 10,000-square-foot facility. A clock tower and two-story picture window overlooking the Shell Bank Channel, reflect the character of this waterfront community. Its two large gardens are tended by the same active community groups that have supported the library for the past 65 years.
