Students in Elgin Area Unit District 46 now have another way to improve their reading skills. A trip to the Poplar Creek Library will not only provide them with access to the books and activities that spark their interest, but a learning tool they are familiar with.

The Poplar Creek Library, at 1405 S. Park Blvd., Streamwood, has worked with Patricia Gonzales Martinez, principal at Parkwood Elementary School to provide access to LEXIA Reading, an education program that gives students foundational reading skills.

Students are using this program in the schools to help them practice their skills and now their library is providing a way for them to continue to improve.

Staff members at Poplar Creek Library provided the help and support to provide this opportunity for students to access this intervention program any time they are at the library. This is a partnership that will continue to support all students in the area.

The Poplar Creek library also has a branch library at 4300 Audrey Lane, Hanover Park.
