Library Reading Program Receives Funding Boost From Target Store Grant

The Canton Public Library is the recipient of a $3,000 Target store Early Childhood Reading Grant. Money from the grant, combined with funds from the Friends of the Canton Public Library, will be used to sponsor Family Reading Nights at the Canton Public Library.

Librarian Anne Cnockaert applied for the grant on behalf of the library and helped to create the Family Reading Night program, which will start in October and run through June, 2010.

"This program encourages the whole family to become involved in reading," says Cnockaert. "There will be a themed storytime, then families can complete a craft and have a snack related to the story. The family will receive a free book that they can read together and take home to keep."

Hurry...Reading Month is Ending Soon!

Book WhispererDonalyn Miller, Teacher Magazine blogger and author, couldn't find a book that demonstrated her love for reading to her students so she decided to write one herself. It's a shame we aren't born with the desire to love books. We have to discover the world of books on our own, or from parents and teachers. Many of us have cherished childhood memories of visiting the library and happily leaving with an armful of books.
