Cedar Mill is an Outstanding "Ready to Read" Library!
Our library was recently recognized by the Oregon State Library as a "Best Practices Library." A recipient of the state's "Ready to Read" grant, the library used the grant money to develop several programs that encourage children to read.
One program that received praise is a successful new book and art outreach program that brings books to childcare homes. The library also partnered with early intervention home visitation specialists for the first time to encourage parents of babies and toddlers with special needs to share books with their children. Other outstanding programs include our early literacy trainings for parents and childcare providers, and our annual summer reading program reaching over 5,000 young readers. Visit the Oregon State Library website to learn more about the projects that were recognized.
