Raising A Reader is an early literacy program that promotes parent-child bonding through reading. In collaboration with First 5 Colusa, the Colusa County Literacy Program offers two free 10-week sessions per year, at all branch locations: Colusa, Arbuckle, Grimes, Maxwell, Princeton, Stonyford, and Williams. Each spring and fall, parents and their children, ages birth through five, establish a reading routine that has been proven to foster healthy brain development, healthy relationships, a love of reading, and the literacy skills critical for school success. Weekly story time and interactive activities at the library along with a weekly Book Bag make reading fun for the whole family. Participants will also receive free books to help build up their home libraries!
Fall 2018 Schedule: September 4-November 15 (registration ends September 20)
Spring 2019 Schedule: February 5-April 12 (registration ends February 22)
