September is coming to a close. The CLiF Year of the Book has been successfully launched in eight elementary schools, and schools that saw 80% or more of families commit to regularly reading together are getting ice cream socials. Rural Libraries kickoffs are coming up next.

Could it be? Is that… sun? Are those… green sprouts coming out of the ground?
Here are a few notable stories we saw over the past several sunny, springy days:
- Charlotte Albright of Vermont Public Radio visited Lowell, VT to talk with CLiF Year of the Book students and Natalie Kinsey-Warnock about their Story Keepers family history research and writing projects.
A very talented friend of mine designs modern family trees, and when I had my child, I decided to get her one.
This turned into a much bigger project than I expected. I was so thankful that family members have been collecting my family’s and my husband’s lineage.
Probably most adults could not coherently discuss
- the differences between the 1840 and 1860 census
- how a daguerreotype differs from a tintype
- or the repercussions of the 1890 census being destroyed in a Department of Commerce fire.
But the children of Island Pond and Lowell, Vermont can.
