Ohana Readers Program To Expand To Hawaii Island
The Ohana Readers literacy program is expanding to the Kau area of Hawaii island.
The program aims to enrich reading with families through monthly books sent to their homes free of charge. Initially launched in 2019 at Molokai, the books are high-quality and age-appropriate from the Dolly Parton Imagination Library.
“This program is all about reading!” said State Librarian Stacey Aldrich. “It encourages the development of a love of words and reading by helping each child create their own library of books. Each book read builds early literacy skills for school readiness.”
Families can sign up for the Ohana Readers program by visiting the Nāʻālehu Public Library and Pāhala Public & School Library. Download and fill up the form that can be found at FLHhawaii.org/ohanareaders.
