​Early Literacy Campaign

Early literacy and kindergarten readiness is a critical problem throughout Lucas County. Nearly two-thirds of students tested are not prepared to enter kindergarten with the fundamental skills to learn how to read and write. The Leadership Committee for the Early Literacy Campaign Planting a Seed to Read, comprised of Library Legacy Foundation Board members, Library Trustees, and community leaders, is united by a common passion to improve essential literacy skills for all young children in our community.

We need your help more than ever! We believe that every child deserves to enter Kindergarten prepared with the literacy skills that will enable him/her to read, to write and to succeed in life. Won’t you please join us in this valuable effort?

If you have questions regarding a gift, please contact the Library Legacy Foundation at 419.259.5123 or library.legacy@toledolibrary.org.
