ANGIER - The Motheread /Fatheread grant-based family literacy program meets three times per week at Angier Baptist Church in Angier.

The Central Carolina Community College (CCCC) College and Career Readiness (CCR) program in Harnett County has successfully secured an annual grant from Harnett County Partnership for Children, a non-profit organization, for five consecutive fiscal years with the goal for adults and children to learn and understand the power of literacy to empower their own lives as well as their families and communities. Since its inception, more than 300 students have been served in the program.

The Motheread/Fatheread program uses curriculum from Motheread, Inc, a nationally acclaimed, private, non-profit organization, that includes children's books and a variety of other educational resources to improve the literacy as well as all four language skills (listening, reading, speaking, and writing) of parents and caregivers of infants, toddlers, and pre-school age children. It also provides young children (0-5 years) with a structured environment for learning reading, critical thinking, and other age-appropriate motor and cognitive development skills.

The CCCC CCR program at Harnett offers Motheread class three days a week -- Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. at Angier Baptist Church in Angier. Free children's books are given away to the participants weekly to build their own library at home and healthy snacks are provided in the class daily. Along with a Motheread certified instructor, there are five childcare staff and a site coordinator.

For more information on the Motheread program, please contact Dr. Nutan Varma, CCCC College and Career Readiness Coordinator- Harnett, at 910-814-8975 or email at
