Raising Readers Library Corner in LansingburghRaising Readers Library Corners


WMHT Educational Telecommunications is one of over 30 PBS stations expanding the PBS Kids Raising Readers Library Corners program in local libraries across the country. WMHT is partnering with three libraries in our community to expand this initiative, which will now reach over 1,254,655 children and families across New York State. The three libraries involved are Granville–Pember Library and Museum, Schenectady Public Library and the Lansingburgh Branch of the Troy Public Library. Find a Raising Readers Library Corner in other New York State regions here.

The Library Corners are designed and equipped to give children aged two to eight the opportunity to strengthen their literacy skills through free, fun materials that feature friendly and beloved PBS characters. These spaces, either at local public libraries or school libraries, offer a place where children can play literacy games on the computer, read a book or watch an educational, interactive DVD.
