The Family Literacy Program is comprised of two libraries/community centers for all residents of Kuhio Park and Mayor Wright Homes. In addition to checking out books (many of which have been donated), patrons can participate in weekly story hour, literacy activities, and receive help with homework. We also provide access to computers and high quality children's e-books at our on-site Technology Rooms and through our subscription to TumbleBooks. Community volunteer groups offer Saturday story hour events, too.

Volunteering with our Family Libraries is a great way make a difference in the lives of children. Volunteers can perform a variety of tasks such as leading story hours, helping with homework, or playing literacy-building games. Volunteers who prefer to help behind-the-scences are also needed to complete tasks such as cleaning and book cataloging. If you are a part of a group, please email us below to inquire about group volunteer activities. Individuals, please complete our volunteer application to get started! We ask for a minimum commitment of one visit per week, for at least four months. A criminal background check is required.
