WARDSBORO- On Thursday, August 3, at 6 pm, children will be treated to a storytelling presentation from author Michael Daley and given brand-new books to keep, thanks to a grant from the Children’s Literacy Foundation.

Daley is the author of several children’s books, including “Rat Trap” and the “Pinch and Dash” series. The author will lead an interactive presentation for children at the Wardsboro Public Library. At the end of the presentation, each child will be able to select two new books to keep from hundreds of titles.

CLiF awards Summer Readers grants to organizations serving kids at high risk of experiencing a summer slide in literacy skills. The partnership between Wardsboro Public Library and CLiF will reach young readers who are at greatest risk. Research shows that children who don’t read over summer vacation tend to lose literacy skills while children who do read improve their reading abilities.
