You can help your baby build literacy skills in an online program that the Phoenix Public Library offers.

The BabyTime program will meet virtually at 9:30 a.m. on Tuesdays, Oct. 6, 13, 20 and 27. Babies up to two years old can participate in the program, with an adult taking part with them at all times. An instructor will teach parents stories, rhymes and songs they can engage in with their babies. The babies will learn pre-reading skills from parents as they talk, sing and play together in the activities.

The classes will meet on WebEx, an online meeting platform. You must register for the program ahead of time. A link to join the class will be sent to those who register the day of the program. To register and learn more, visit
