The Cuyahoga County Public Library System and its local Parma School System have piloted a rich partnership to help youth literacy. It began with after school programming led by librarians, branched out to a homework center and a collaborative approach towards summer reading, and is now tackling the topics of early literacy and helping students achieve grade level reading standards.
