November is the perfect time to read
The partnering libraries in Cuyahoga County officially launched the Cuyahoga Reads program this past summer! The program encourages every child throughout our county to read each day.
In order to achieve that goal, we are asking adults to join the challenge too! Talk to the young people in your life and neighborhood about what they are reading. Encourage them to participate in one of the literacy programs offered through Making a Difference Consulting at your local public library. To track reading, find a program, or learn more, visit us online at cuyahogareads.org.
Cuyahoga Reads Literacy Tip of the Month
As a busy caregiver, it can be challenging to find the time to teach your children new skills. Here’s a tip: As you travel around Cuyahoga County, consider playing an audiobook. While in the car, bus, or train, audiobooks expose students to new words and phrases.
Listening to readers with different pitch, tempo, and stress can help us understand ambiguous sentences or unfamiliar vocabulary. When you’re on the go, consider turning on an audiobook and watch your children’s language skills grow!
For more information about Cuyahoga Reads, contact one of the participating libraries: Cleveland Public Library, Cuyahoga County Public Library, East Cleveland Public Library, Euclid Public Library, Heights Libraries, Lakewood Public Library, Rocky River Public Library, Shaker Library, or Westlake Porter Public Library.
