DaybyDayNY is a new website for young children and their families. It is part of the New York State Library early literacy initiative Ready to Read at New York Libraries. The site features a virtual calendar with content that changes every day, giving families with young children numerous daily activities and a story to read together. The New York State Library hopes that families across New York State will use this interactive calendar to develop a love for books and learning that will last a lifetime. The calendar uses multimedia to enhance books, songs, and family health and bring these components to life. If families can only spend a few minutes together, this calendar will give them something they can use to make sure that this is quality time as well as educational time.
DayByDayNY is funded in part through the Federal Library Services and Technology Act, with funds awarded to the New York State Library by the Federal Institute of Museum and Library Services. The New York State Library is a program of the Office of Cultural Education in the New York State Education Department.
