ABSTRACT
Family literacy programs are distinguished from other literacy programs by their inter-generational focus. The goal of family literacy programs is to increase the literacy skills of the entire family, thus helping the family to achieve self-sufficiency and enabling parents to become active participants in their child's education. The library media specialist should be considered an important member of the planning and facilitating team for family literacy programs. The most important characteristic of any successful family literacy program is respect and appreciation for the diversity of knowledge and backgrounds that the families will bring to the program.
