Literacy Kits now at the OCPL

Posted by blair on

In order to help parents find materials on their child’s reading level, the OCPL has created Literacy Kits. These kits contain multiple books in various reading levels, comprehension questions for parents to discuss with their children as they read, and hands-on reading skill games to boost understanding. Children can begin at any level and progress through all the kits and levels to improve reading fluency and comprehension. These Literacy Kits are available at all four library branches and on the Bookmobile. They can be checked out for four weeks on any library card.

Here’s a handy guide with more: https://oconee.libguides.com/literacy_kits
