The Pinellas Public Library Cooperative's Born to Read program was recently awarded a $500 grant from READ Pinellas to support family literacy programming and materials. These funds will support Born to Read families throughout Pinellas County through their public libraries. READ Pinellas is a literacy organization that strives to assist programs such as Born to READ and enable families to break the chronic cycle of illiteracy and poverty. These at-risk families in Pinellas County include teen parents, poverty level families, ESOL families and families with special needs. Children's books, parenting guides and other literacy resources will be purchased with these funds to benefit those individuals in the Pinellas community.
