Is your child reading on grade level? The Burton Barr Central Library, 1221 N. Central Avenue in Phoenix, is offering free reading-level screenings the first Saturday of each month, provided by the Arizona Literacy and Learning Center. Screenings are conducted 9:30 a.m. through 1:30 p.m. with the last appointment beginning at 12:30 p.m.; appointments are assigned on a first-come, first-served basis.
Registration is not required and specially-trained staff will screen children in kindergarten through third grade to determine their reading level. Staff will suggest activities and materials for parents to help children not reading at grade level. Referral information will be provided to families whose child may need professional assistance. Call 602-262-4636 for more info.
