Sutton Free Library is thrilled to announce that we have been selected as one of the Children’s Literacy Foundation (CLiF) Rural Library grant recipients for the 2018-2019 school year!

CLiF is a non-profit organization whose mission is to nurture a love of reading and writing among low-income, at-risk, and rural children up to age 12. CLiF awards its Rural Libraries grant program to twelve public libraries in NH and VT in towns of populations of 5,000 or less. CLiF works closely with the town’s public library, the local elementary school, and area daycares and preschools to provide extensive support over the course of one school year. This includes:

  • $2,000 in new books for the public library & $500 in new books for the school library
  • Brand-new books for all participating children from birth through grade six
  • Storytelling presentations at the elementary school and childcare centers
  • Brand-new books for all participating children

Thanks to the generous support of CLiF, and their sponsors, both the Sutton Free Library and the Sutton Central School library are adding many new titles, from picture books to non-fiction, to graphic novels, and audio books!

We can’t wait for you to stop by soon to see all the new books and share in all the excitement!
