"Enhancing Life-Long Learning"

Early learning and literacy programs for families and individuals of all ages.

About Us

To Our Valued OBLT Community,

Writing from my heart, I want to reach out to all the families and other valued community friends who use our programs. As you may understand, our programs will be closed to the public and community users to protect them as well as our OBLT staff team until further notice.

As we walk through these times together, I want you to know that all of us at OBLT are thinking of you. We miss your happy smiles and the connections we have with you. We will do our best to keep present via our website and Facebook page. Stay tuned, stay healthy, stay home and we look forward to seeing you in the better times ahead.
