Raising A Reader

Join the Mono County Library Raising A Reader Program!

The Raising A Reader Program is an early literacy program whose mission is to foster healthy brain development, parent-child bonding, and early literacy skills critical for school success. Through lending book bags to children, Raising A Reader engages parents in a routine of daily “book cuddling” with their children ages birth to five. One in three children entering kindergarten lacks basic pre-reading skills, which are proven to be a key factor in determining high-school graduation and lifelong success.
