ELWC has distributed literacy kits to promote culturally specific ways of Reading, Talking, Singing, Playing and Writing with young children in English, Spanish and Vietnamese. Together with the Iraqi Society of Oregon and the Oregon Korean School, we have co-developed literacy kits in Arabic and Korean. A Permanent Collection was built in 2017 in Beaverton City Library with more than 3,000 new titles for children and families in English, Spanish, Koran, Mandarin, Farsi, Somali, and Arabic among others.
