Children read more if they live near a library!

by Mikinaak on Nov. 06th, 2008

In the libraries i've seen the children have always been living really close to the library or they are old enough to ride a bike or bus to go to the library, mind you this is just a burst or an idea. I mean do you go to the library a lot because you live close to it? I certainly would!

and kids read more if they have plenty of parental involvement and teachers that also care enough to help out their students.
i was encouraged to read by my teachers at an early age, and that made a world of difference.
