CLN has received a generous grant from the Kiwanis Club of Ann Arbor to support our new BookPALS program, built on the well-known concept of “pen-pals.” For the 2019-2020 school year, second grade students from Ypsilanti public schools will each be paired with a “BookPAL” from a Dexter public school. Each month a BookPAL picks a book, records themselves reading on a tablet, and answers questions about themselves – everything is shared with the BookPALS from the partner school and the whole process is repeated throughout the year. Over the year, the pals’ friendships and home libraries grow, along with skills and a love of reading!
The Kiwanis Foundation grant program depends solely on the success of Kiwanis Thrift Sale. Please help Kiwanis continue to support CLN and many other organizations by shopping at the Kiwanis Thrift Sale, at 100 N Staebler (at Jackson Road) on Fridays and Saturdays from 9:00 am – 1 pm.
