Toledo Public Library launches literacy initiative

TOLEDO, OH (Toledo News Now) -

The Toledo Lucas County Public Library has launched a new campaigned called, "Planting a Seed to Read."

The program is designed to improve the early literacy skills of area preschool children.

Ohio statistics show one-third of all Toledo-area students are unprepared when they enter school.

The program allows parents access to free learning tools and children's reading aids to help better prepare their children for grade school.

A library van brings reading materials into target neighborhoods around the city, and volunteers stress the importance or reading to kids.
