Ready Rosie

The Mifflin County Library has been selected as a Pennsylvania pilot site for READYROSIE, a self- directed early literacy resource for adults to do with children ages zero to six. Each activity is modeled on a two minute video. Simply watch the video, do the activity, and everyone learns something new.

Kelly Rodenbaugh, Children’s Services Manager is excited for the library to be a site for the program. “This resource combines early literacy learning with the smart devices young families are using on a daily basis. You can watch the video and do the activity anywhere you have a smart phone or tablet.”

“READYROSIE has a research based evaluation component that proves its works,” said Library Director, Dr. Molly Kinney. “Parents who participate in the program gain skills that help their children become successful learners.”

Registration is easy. Go to: Download the app from the App Store or Google Play. Select how you’d like to receive video and activity, either via email, or SMS text message.

The library is hoping to have at least 100 Mifflin County families register. “Just two minutes a day,” said Rodenbaugh, “that’s all it takes to participate.”
