The Literacy Center of Milford helps many programs in the community to strive to improve our children's literacy. Reading is important even at a very young age. We help many programs, including Books for Babies and Books for Toddlers, Books for Birthdays, middle school tutoring and have a volunteer program in which volunteers read to preschoolers.
If there is one skill that all children should master, it is reading. Reading is so important for children because they need to use reading to learn all of their other subjects. Without strong reading skills, children may struggle in math, science, social studies and even arts. As adults, they will read everyday no matter what type of job they have.
