Brown County Literacy Coalition
The Brown County Literacy Coalition collaborates with community partners to tutor children, distribute books, and provide a bridge to reading fluency and comprehension. The tutoring program supports children in grades 1-12 via partnerships with the Brown county Schools, local tutors, Indiana University, and the Indiana Kids program.
Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library sends a free book each month to the home of participating children, aged birth to five. Signup sheets are available at many locations in Brown County and at the Literacy Coalition office. Other available free materials include a children’s music CD and a video for parents regarding the importance of reading to children.
