Early literacy programs are key to growing readers. When stories come alive for children at an early age, it can spark genuine excitement for books and reading. The Ozarks Literacy Council (OLC) strives to make kids’ enthusiasm for reading expand beyond the classroom and into the child’s home. Supporting family literacy provides a foundation for children to become strong readers and successful students.
Just 20 minutes of reading at home each day prepares a child to be successful in school and in life.
