Literacy Programs Continue to Thrive!

Pictured with the PHNCF’s director, Cheryl Goldstone, are Kelsey and Laine, who received their books during their visit at SMG Pediatrics.

Reading is an essential skill that we use throughout the course of our lives, but there are many benefits to exposing children to books before they know how to read. Not only will they learn about language and listening, it is also a wonderful bonding experience for the child and their caregiver.

The PHNCF’s Reach Out & Read Program continues to expand with requests for additional books in Greenville, Wayne, Shenandoah, Titusville, and Sharon Medical Group Pediatrics. SMG is our largest book distribution site, with over 100 books a month.

Additionally, the PHNCF has been expanding their Little Free Libraries program and has recently added libraries to Titusville and Lewistown. Ribbon cuttings will be coming in September. The PHNCF continues to add 50 or more books a month to each of the libraries. At PHNCF, The Little Free Library’s mission is to be a catalyst for building community, inspiring readers, and expanding book access for all. We continue to strive to reach our goal to incorporate a Little Free Library across all of Primary Health Network’s pediatric sites.
