    North Country HealthCare & Flagstaff City Public Libraries Partner to Promote Literacy

    What?
    So What?
    Now What?

    Visitors to North Country HealthCare’s Flagstaff 4th Street location will notice some new additions to the central lobby. Flagstaff City – Coconino County Public Libraries supplied an Early Literacy Station, complete with entertaining activities to make the waiting time easier for families with small children. The Early Literacy Station includes a quality collection of books, a comfy bench, a computer with early literacy games, and a listening center. These unique options will not only spark learning and creativity in awaiting patients, but will also promote services offered at the Flagstaff Public Libraries. Library story time and event calendars are displayed, giving patients a glimpse into all the Flagstaff Public Libraries have to offer.

    In addition to the Literacy Station, the Flagstaff Libraries are also providing certificates to be given to children after their well child visit, congratulating them for taking care of their health, and inviting them to the public library to take care of their literacy needs. The certificate also entitles the child to a free bookmark and pencil.

    Sadly, 66% of children in the United States are not proficient in reading by the end of third grade. The Flagstaff City – Coconino County Public Libraries work hard to combat this reality and increase literacy rates. However, many families remain unaware of all the free programs offered at local libraries. Some of these free programs include Lego Club, book clubs, computer classes, “Dial a Story”, Homework Help, and other events throughout the month.

    The library also boasts the Bookmobile, a mobile library that travels to schools to bring materials to teachers and students. The Bookmobile strives to reach those outlying areas of Coconino County that may not otherwise have access to library services.

    The Literacy Station is a welcomed addition, and North Country HealthCare is very grateful for the generous donation. We are confident that this partnership, along with Reach Out and Read, will help boost literacy rates in our county.
