TALK is made possible by the Indiana State Library and the Institute of Museum and Library Services.
Harrison County Public Library is excited to provide TALK – Text And Learn for Kindergarten to our residents. TALK is an early literacy texting program for parents and caregivers of young children. Diana Lasky of Youth Services stated, “Our director Alisa Burch has always looked for ways to encourage early literacy practices at home. This is the perfect way to put early literacy tips directly into the hands of all caregivers. Anyone can use TALK, no library affiliation is required.”
Interested adults may sign up to receive 2 messages per week with fun activities to do at home to help prepare little ones, ages 5 and under, for school success.
To register, simply:
- Text TALK to 75547 or go to TALK
- Provide the child’s birthdate and zip code
- Choose your language: English or Spanish
(2 children maximum per phone number)
You’re all set! You may opt out at anytime.
HCPL staff are happy to help if you need assistance with registration.
Feel free to contact the library at 812-738-4110 for assistance or information.
