Dorchester County Library is partnering with Trident United WayBerkeley County Library System, and Charleston County Public Library to promote reading to ages birth to five and improve regional literacy gaps.

  • During birth to 5 age range, 90% of a child’s brain development occurs. 
  • 57% of Tri-County children are deemed “not ready” when starting Kindergarten.
  • More than half of Tri-County third graders are not reading at grade level.
  • This partnership aims to impact Tri-County children’s literacy skills beginning from birth on to the years they walk into Kindergarten so we may also impact the future skill base of our Tri-County workforce.
