Raising Readers in Story County

About Us


The mission of Raising Readers in Story County is to improve language and literacy development in children from birth to age eight and nurture healthy parent-child relationships.


Raising Readers in Story County is committed to a future in which generations of young children get a solid foundation in reading, communicating, and learning. This will help prepare them to become successful students, citizens, and workers.

  1. Children starting at birth will have experiences that help them thrive, come to school ready to read and learn, and read at or above grade level by the end of third grade.

  2. Families will provide caring and stimulating environments that nurture the language, literacy, and emotional development of their young children.

  3. Communities will help by providing effective early care and education, good books for children, reliable literacy information, and support for families.
