Illiteracy in today’s children is tied to their parent’s literacy experiences. Lee County Literacy Coalition’s (LCLC) Legacy Learning Project will engage families with activities and instruction to improve overall literacy. The goal is to empower parents with tools to improve their literacy; share activities to be incorporated in daily practices and engage and bond with their child to promote reading. This project will share available resources in the community to further literacy goals for the family. Breakout sessions will be facilitated on-site and grouped by grade and/or reading level. Literacy coaches will connect with individual families one-on-one, as needed. Through consistent engagement, parents will gain educational support, parenting tools and activities to improve their child’s learning experience.

This free project begins on Thursday, July 22, at 6 p.m. at the Covington Recreation Center located a 213 Carver Ave. in Opelika. Dinner will be provided. Monthly sessions will be full of activities, resources and so much fun. Families completing the program will be gifted a starter library for their homes. This project is funded by a grant received from the Dollar General Literacy Foundation. Other partners include the City of Opelika Parks and Recreation and the Carbon Academy. Let’s build a  better future together! For more information or to register call 334-705-0001 or email
