As schools, libraries, afterschool programs, and preschools ramp up for fall, we wanted to share some low-cost literacy program ideas that CLiF partners generated last year. Many of our grants now include an additional program component. The ideas listed here came from these CLiF opportunities:
- Last winter, CLiF added a $500 Revive grant to any organization who had received a CLiF grant within the last 5 years
- $250 program grant that is part of the larger Rural Libraries grant
- $400 mini grant for teachers that is part of Year of the Book
Many of the grants supported book purchases and author visits – so exciting for kids and parents.
