        Turn the Page KC, the Kansas City Public Library, and the Local Investment Commission are three organizations in Kansas City that promote early literacy. Although dads are a critical part of teaching children to read, less than half of dads read to their kids. So this summer, we are promoting #DadsTurnThePage. We will stock barbershops and other places dads go with books so that they will be encouraged to start the habit of reading at home.
