For the last nine years, the Literacy Council has sponsored Book Day to support our community’s youngest learners (preschoolers) through the county’s preschool and Head Start programs. The Council budgets for book purchases and story-related project supplies to reinforce a particular aspect of each book with the young learners.  The goal is to encourage a love of reading by building a beginning library for each child in their home and to encourage parents to read to their children. A not accompanying each gift book also advises the parents of the work of the Literacy Council.
