CM Allen holds presser on early literacy Jan. 16

Ward 6 CM Charles Allen will hold a press conference to introduce an early childhood literacy initiative Friday, January 16 at 10:30 am at Southwest Neighborhood Library (900 Wesley Pl SW).   The goal of the legislation is to make the District a leader in early literacy, to increase access to books for all children, to help parents and adults with low literacy, and to put books in the hands of all District children ages 0-5 years old to jump-start their love for reading and to promote better reading skills.

Following the presser, there will be a children's book reading inside the library in the children's area.
