Ready to Read Corps

Ready to Read Corps is a first-of-its-kind initiative that takes the library into at-risk communities to teach parents and caregivers of children ages 0 to 5 how to be their child's first teacher and prepare their children for kindergarten. Our Ready to Read Corps team serves Weinland Park/Parsons Ave., Linden, Hilltop, Northside, Groveport and Whitehall communities.
