Children's Literacy Foundation To Help Libraries

Oct 10, 2013

The Children's Literacy Foundation is making grants to rural libraries in Vermont and New Hampshire so they can buy books and hold storytelling presentations for local children.

Each grant includes money for storytelling presentations and books that will be chosen by the town librarian.

In addition to the money for the books, each local elementary school library receives a selection of 25 new books and daycare centers receive 15 books.

Twice during the school year professional storytellers will give presentations to children enrolled in the elementary school and daycares and town children will be treated to a free book giveaway before summer vacation.
