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 (which many have been donated), patrons can participate in weekly story hour, literacy activities, and receive help with homework or writing letters for business matters. We also provide access to computers and high quality children’s e-books at our on-site Technology Rooms and through our subscription database, TumbleBooks. Community volunteer groups offer Saturday story hour events, too.
Interested in helping kids improve their literacy skills? Hawaii Literacy is looking for volunteers to help read and work directly with children, parents, and/or caregivers at Mayor Wright Homes and Kuhio Park Terrace. Volunteers can also take part in reading books aloud, helping with an art or writing activity, or assisting others in choosing and checking out books. A criminal background check is required.
