“Youth literacy is a big issue here in Alachua County,” Alachua County Library District Public Relations and Marketing Manager Brad McClenny says. “Below grade-level performance in reading can lead to a student dropping out of school, it increases the risk of incarceration, and it could lead to poverty later in life.”

In Alachua County, poverty is a big problem, as 20% of individuals live below the poverty line, which is 7% higher than Florida’s rate. Additionally, minority enrollment in public schools is 60%, and 40% of students are economically disadvantaged.
