Read Write Discover (formerly known as Read to Succeed!) is a program that matches high school students with youth grades first through eighth grades in an effort to help improve their literacy skills. This program targets students who are struggling in reading and writing or whose families face language barriers in their communities. Taking place during the summertime, this program provides services at a time when free, school-based programs are limited and some families cannot afford fee-based supplemental educational programs. Founded in 2006, this program is located in community libraries and has grown to serve over 100 youth every year.
