Summer readers program accepting applications
WATERBURY — the Children’s Literacy Foundation (CLiF) is still accepting applications for its Summer Readers program. The program brings Vermont and New Hampshire authors and storytellers to places where low-income kids spend time in the summer to inspire a love of reading and writing. Each child gets to choose two new books so they will have access to high-quality literature during the summer break.
Eligible partners include libraries, summer school programs, childcare centers, camps and recreation programs, affordable housing developments, immigrant and refugee programs, summer meal sites, and organizations serving low-income, at-risk, and rural kids (up to age twelve) in New Hampshire and Vermont.
Applications can be found at clifonline.org and are due Wednesday, June 12, but early applications are encouraged.
