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. The program develops literacy skills and establishes a connection between families and the local library. After graduating the program, each child receives a blue library bag with a custom nametag and an included book to take home. Children can use the blue bags when returning to the library, cueing librarians to help them find appropriate books that build reading skills.
