Raising A Reader

The Rochester Public Library is a Raising a Reader affiliate.  Raising a Reader strives to instill a love of reading in children and involve families directly in literacy activities.

  • Parents receive training in how to develop the habit of sharing books with their children.
  • High quality books are rotated into the home on a weekly basis for families to practice regular book sharing.
  • Families are connected to the local library in order to sustain book borrowing and book sharing practices.
