Early Literacy Classes (Birth – Age 5)

Fairfield Public Library offers various early literacy classes for all children from birth to age 5, both registration and drop-in (no registration required; space is limited). Participants in early literacy classes are registered based on their age. Please see our Events Calendar for a full list of programs and events for families and children up to Grade 5.

The Winter 2024 seven-week session runs from Tuesday, January 2nd through Friday, February 16th. This session will offer drop-in classes (no registration required; space is limited) and registration classes determined by a lottery. See below for information on specific drop-in-only classes.

This session’s registration classes will be determined by a lottery with a three-week signup period from December 1st to December 22nd. Registrants will be randomly selected to participate in the full seven-week session, with no weekly signup required. Registrants will be notified by email on December 29th.

In addition, a duplicate class will be offered each week as a drop-in (no registration required). This class is offered for participants who are not in the registered session only. Drop-in tickets will be handed out 30 minutes before the start of each class at the Children’s Desk. Space is limited and based on room size to ensure the quality of each class.

Please see below for information on each early literacy class offered at both the Main Library downtown and the Fairfield Woods Branch Library. Select the image to view each class on our Events Calendar.
