Fredericton, NB – Today, the Literacy Coalition of New Brunswick is proud to launch Melanie, a bilingual online tool that will enable families, educators and all service providers to gain greater access to literacy resources, programs, tools, and information that best support New Brunswick early childhood literacy.

This new online tool will help anyone who is looking for early childhood literacy services in their community or would like to find quality literacy resources and useful information easier and faster in one place.  “Melanie, as an online platform, offers a one- stop shop of reliable and well researched quality early literacy information and resources for New Brunswickers.  By providing user friendly access, contact information and links to every early childhood literacy service that is available throughout New Brunswick on one site, we know families and service providers will easily find what they are looking for”, says Lynda Homer, Executive Director of Literacy Coalition of New Brunswick.

 “We were noticing just how much parents rely upon on the Internet to find information related to early childhood literacy,” says Homer. “While the internet is helpful in so many ways, we were also hearing that parents and service providers were finding it difficult and time consuming to find information and local services and to know if the resources are high quality”.
