The Hoh Tribal Business Council and the Hoh Tribal Library will support the development of early literacy skills in children, ages birth through eight, by starting a library home visiting program; increase culturally-based children and parenting materials, events and activities available through the library to respond to community needs and recommendations from state and national studies on early literacy development. The library will enhance its early literacy program as it moves into its third year of operation by connecting babies, toddlers, and children up to eight years old and their adult caregivers to a variety of learning experiences to increase children's pre-reading skills and parent/caregivers' awareness of those skills. The project is based on a research-based program, Raising a Reader, which integrates the latest research in early literacy and infant brain development with traditional Native American storytime elements.
