This project engaged parent learners in weekly literacy workshops and close integration with the library, including a family/community literacy event. The project added a curricular component to increase families’ understanding and utilization of the local library in addition to supporting parents’ English language development, providing for print-rich home environments, and fostered cultural transmission in multigenerational homes.
