CLiF is now accepting applications for our Year of the Book grant for the 2013-2014 school year. Our one-year partnership with elementary schools encourages students to read and write more often for enjoyment in school and at home.
CLiF provides select elementary schools in New Hampshire and Vermont with more than $25,000 worth of children’s literacy programs, support, and brand-new books over the course of one school year. Programs include interactive storytelling presentations, author or illustrator visits, multi-day writing workshops, and mini-grants for teachers.
In addition, each student who participates in Year of the Book will have the opportunity to choose 10 brand-new books to keep.
Please visit the Year of the Book page of our website to see if your school qualifies and to download an application.
Application deadline is March 1, 2013.
