Why Participate?

Reading Programs make a difference.

The Winter Reading Program at Yolo County Library helps promote literacy for people of all ages by providing incentives to develop and sustain a lifelong reading habit. Research indicates that reading programs help children and teens enhance their reading skills, provide a haven for community readers, and develop reading enthusiasm. Additionally, adult participation encourages parents to play a strong role in their child’s literacy development by reading aloud with their child and modeling good reading behavior.
