Marty Kelley Visit
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.“
