Fogler Library, in partnership with UMaine’s College of Education and Human Development, Old Town Elementary School, and Old Town Public Library has received a grant from the Institute of Museum and Library Services. The Maine State Library will serve as a consultant. The grant project addresses the challenges of school readiness and summer reading loss for children from birth to age eight through the development and evaluation of 20-30 informational text kits. Fogler Library will work with the College of Education and Human Development to develop the kits, which will be theme-based. Each kit will include one fiction and two non-fiction books, a flannel board, and a small toy for play related to the theme. The kits, which will be housed at Fogler Library, the Old Town Elementary School Library, and the Old Town Public Library, will be available for check out by interested parents. The grant project will also provide training for librarians in three areas: early literacy knowledge, working with parents to use the kits, and the criteria for creating new kits.

The Fogler Film Series continues on Tuesday, October 22nd with "It Was Rape." The film will be shown at 7:00 pm in the CETA Classroom at Fogler Library and will be followed by a discussion. For more information, contact Nancy Lewis at <> or call 581-3613.
