Get your preschooler Ready to Read with the text program from the Montana State Library! 

To sign up, text "SIGNUP" to (406) 204-3583.  It's a free program and you do not have to have a library card to sign up.  You will receive three messages per week for eight months to help you learn about early literacy skills and help your child develop these skills through easy practices you can do every day at home, like reading, singing, talking, playing, and writing together. 

If, for any reason and at any time, you'd like to stop receiving text messages, just text the word "stop" to the same number.

Call or stop by if you have any questions about this program.
