A pilot bilingual program hosted by the Inwood Library is not only bridging the language gap among pre-kindergarten children in the community but also changing the way city libraries collaborate with schools and families, officials said.
The Bilingual Family Literacy Breakfast Program, launched in October, is the first of its kind to hold monthly meetings with parents at a local school, P.S. 98, to discuss best learning practices for parents to use with their children at home.
The program also supplements pre-K classrooms and teachers with resources like books, videos and other printed materials, according to children's librarian Rachel Skinner O'Neil.
