First Grade Prepares for Author's Visit

This week the first grade prepared for a visit by Marty Kelley by reading several of his books and doing a writing and art project in the style of his book, Fall Is Not Easy. We each have seasons that we love and those we find more difficult! This was a great way to compare what is easy and not so easy about each of the seasons!

Marty Kelley Visit

Thanks to the Children’s Literacy Foundation grant (CLIF) awarded to Antrim’s Tuttle Library, Antrim Elementary School was able to host local author and illustrator Marty Kelley on December 9, 2022. In the weeks leading up to his visit, AES students read his books and did projects in the style of Marty Kelley.


In addition to funding the author visit to AES, the grant allowed Tuttle Library’s Youth Services Librarian, Laurie Cass-Griggs, to select $2,000 worth of new books for the library’s children’s collection. This allows libraries to update their collections and expand nonfiction and fiction options for their young patrons.The Antrim Elementary library will also receive $500 worth of new books, a storytelling presentation, and book giveaway.

Laurie Cass-Griggs said, “I’m happy about all the new books that the Children’s Literacy Foundation is bringing to both the public library and the Elementary School library. The children get to experience live storytelling which is a wonderful and exciting art form. But I feel the best part of this grant is the collaboration component between the library and the school. Already we have worked together on literacy programming and combined events, and the children are starting to notice the connection. I feel that the children of Antrim are lucky to have so much educational support in their community.“
