Congresswoman Debbie Dingell attended a picnic at a West Willow neighborhood and looked over some of the books with the children. The children were excited to pick out their books for the summer.
This year, Children’s Literacy Network distributed over 1,000 books at Ypsilanti and Ann Arbor elementary schools and community locations.Our goal at CLN is to ensure that every child has a good book toread over the summer, to help cut back on that dreaded “summer slide”. So many students lose ground over the summer, but if we can help them enjoy reading over the summer, perhaps they will hold on to the progress they made during the school year.
Rep. Dingell has made her support of education clear over the years, and we appreciate the time she spent with CLN and and the children of West Willow!
