It should come as no surprise that the staff at CLiF – where our mission is to nurture a love of reading and writing among low-income, at-risk, and rural children in New Hampshire and Vermont – loves to read! Here’s what we’ve been reading this summer.

In children’s literacy news this week:
- Teachers, librarians, booksellers, take note: via Publishers Weekly‘s Shelftalker blog, Josie Leavitt has great ideas for how bookstores can host successful teacher nights. Josie (of the Flying Pig in Shelburne, dear to my heart) throws credit to Karen Rosenthal of RJ Julia Booksellers in Madison, CT (also dear to my heart).
It’s National Library Week! This week celebrates our public and school libraries as trusted, relevant, and committed community resources and raises awareness of challenges libraries face. CLiF is honored to partner with many rural libraries that bring incredible value to their communities–often on shoestring budgets.
Trying something new here in the CLiF office. We’re tuned in to literacy news from near and far, and there are great stories every day out there about reading, writing, and books. So in the spirit of sharing resources, every week (mostly) we’ll post a mini library of links to stories we like.
