Library Receives Grant to Tutor Young Readers this Summer

Few spots remain for young students to get reading help.

Does your child need help with reading?

If the answer is yes then the Benicia Public Library has a free program that might benefit your child.

The library has received a grant that pays for teachers to help strengthen the reading ability of beginning readers in Benicia.  According to Allison Angell, Children’s Librarian at the library, there are a few spots left in these special classes but parents need to act quickly to secure a spots for their kids.

The program is for first and second grade children – kids who are new to reading- who might need a little extra help.  The grant came from the State so program is free.

The tutoring starts this week and runs through the end of July.  Anyone interested in the  enrolling in their children in the program should contact Angell at the Benicia Public Library at (707) 746-4741 or by email at aangell@ci.benicia.ca.us.
