Libraries Reading Outreach is a collaboration between the public libraries, school districts and County, providing library outreach services to all youth ages birth to 19 in Clatsop County. Approximately 2,900 children live outside the city limits (and library service areas) of the three public libraries in our County.
The three main objectives of Libraries Reading Outreach or ROCC are to provide a library card in the hands of every child, an annual countywide summer reading program, and courier services to assist children in returning their materials.
