Carver Memorial Library receives $455 grant

Apr 11, 2014

Carver Memorial Library received a $455 grant from the Rose and Samuel Rudman Trust of the Maine Community Foundation to support early literacy programming.

This grant will allow Carver Library to purchase new materials that will enhance story times for young children. Beginning in April, the library will offer new story times featuring the Very Ready Reading Program, a comprehensive early-literacy program for children ages birth to 5.

A child’s earliest years set the foundation for all learning to come, and reading to children from birth is the key to developing skills that indicate later success in learning to read. This program is built with the tools to prepare the youngest learners with fun stories, songs and activities that are designed just for them. Grant funding will also support adding to the library’s collection of resources for young children. The library is building a new collection of read-along audiobooks, including many classic picture books with lively readers on the accompanying CDs.

For more information about upcoming programs, please visit or contact Carver Memorial Library at 207-548-2303. All library programs are free and open to the public.
