Literacy programs at Multnomah County Library

It used to be that literacy was a question of: can you read or can't you? Today literacy experts look at the levels of reading ability -- reading a medicine bottle, a newspaper, or a ballot all require different levels of literacy. Our guest Melissa Madensky from the Multnomah County Library talks about their new literacy programs at the North Portland Library. Tune in and call 503-231-8187 with your stories about the issue, plus find out how you can help increase literacy in your community. Wednesday at 8am on 90.7 FM, KBOO.
