Bilingual Family Programs Offered At The W.F. Library - KAUZ-TV: Newschannel 6 Now | Wichita Falls, TX

Bilingual Family Programs Offered At The W.F. Library

On Tuesday, from 6p.m. -  8p.m. the Wichita Falls Public Library will begin four bilingual educational programs. They will be held upstairs in room 205.  

The library received an Amo Leer ("I Love to Read") grant from the Robert and Ruby Priddy Charitable Trust in the fall of 2010.  They were one of 33 Texas and Oklahoma libraries to receive the grant.  The grant enabled the library to add about 500 new Spanish and Spanish/English bilingual children's books to our existing collection.  The goal of the Amo Leer grant was to significantly increase literacy among Hispanic families and young children, so they are better prepared to succeed in school and in life.
 
Beginning with the upcoming September 11th event at the library, four bilingual educational programs focusing on developing Spanish and English reading skills will be offered throughout the 2012-2013 school year.  Additional programs will take place on January 29, May 7 and July 9.  Next week's event will include breakout sessions for students in preK-6th grades and their parents, as well as a college readiness component for junior high and high school students and their parents.
