Reading at the Barbershop

Reading at the Barbershop helps boys learn to enjoy reading so that they can read to learn. Every participating barbershop has age-appropriate reading material to help young boys identify as readers by helping to increase their vocabulary, boosting their confidence, getting them comfortable with public speaking, and building relationship and networking skills by talking to the grown-ups around them.

Funding for this program comes from California Library Services Act, California State Library Families for Literacy, and First 5 Solano.
