WVII Reports on Literacy to Go Program, Interviews Bennett-Armistead

WVII (Channel 7) spoke with Susan Bennett-Armistead, the Correll Professor of Early Literacy at the University of Maine, about the new Literacy to Go program that aims to promote early literacy. UMaine’s Fogler Library and Old Town’s elementary school and public library are teaming up to offer themed kits that include three books inside a pizza box to help children get interested in and excited about reading. Bennett-Armistead said each site is expected to have 20 kits on a variety of topics and librarians will be taught how to use the kits with young children.
