  • Family R.E.A.D.

    We just wrapped up another successful Family R.E.A.D. program! Family R.E.A.D. (Read Eat And Discover) is an intergenerational literacy program that aims to help families feel comfortable reading and discussing books together. This child-driven program made reading a daily habit, which in turn assisted children to read proficiently at their grade level. This curriculum served families with literacy concerns, many of whom are English language learners.

    The entire family was invited to come to the Appleton Public Library for a free meal, followed by book discussion and interactive program. Every week families also received books to read together to get ready for the program, which they get to keep. Every child was also able to choose a new book to keep for their home library.
