Sunday Literacy Program

Sun, May 21, 2017 1:00 P.M.
South Philadelphia Library

The Free Library of Philadelphia is excited to pilot a new Sunday Literacy program at eleven of our neighborhood libraries. This program offers drop-in assistance to students struggling to read in 1st through 3rd grades. Each library hosting a Sunday Literacy program will have two sessions for students.

Each session will be run by a teacher and will include the following elements: Read Aloud, Independent Reading, Literacy Games, and Writing.

Registration is required to participate, but families can register on their first visit. Participants should plan to arrive at the beginning of one of the sessions. Session 1 begins at 1:00 p.m. and runs until 2:45 p.m. Session 2 begins at 3:00 p.m. and runs until 4:45 p.m.

The Sunday Literacy program is part of Read by 4th, a citywide effort of over 100 organizations convened and managed by the Free Library that aims to majorly increase the number of students in Philadelphia entering the 4th grade at reading level by 2020.
