Every week during the program, children bring home red Raising A Reader bags filled with four developmentally appropriate multicultural books to share with their parents.

Children can use the blue bags when returning to the library, cueing librarians to help them find appropriate books that build reading skills.
Rayco Painting boasts more than 25 years of wall-coloring experience and staffs a team of brush-brandishing aces who'll splash new life into your poorly toned or peeling vertical surfaces. Before beginning the interior painting, the crew will mask and cover floors and touch up small wall blemishes, such as nail holes, kick marks, and cracks. Then, using the two gallons of interior flat paint that you provide, they'll launch into a painting frenzy, leaving your walls filled with an even layer of color and void of any accidental art. Afterward, the workers will tidy up the job site, walk through with the customer for a final inspection, and label any necessary touch-up paint.
