Public and school librarians recognize the importance of promoting literacy to all patrons, but this task can be challenging, especially when working with culturally or linguistically diverse populations. Family literacy programs can bring positive changes in parental involvement and student achievement by involving adults in a family to demonstrate, model, and guide children in literacy-related activities.
