COVID-19 Response

COVID-19 halted CLC volunteer visits to classrooms and public school libraries, but our dedicated volunteers continue to support students in new and creative ways. We have leaned in to our already successful program of providing teachers with age and reading level appropriate books for their own classroom libraries. Teachers are grateful for their students to have access on a daily basis to these, often large, high-interest reading collections. We have also enhanced our book gifting program by providing every student in our program books on their personal reading level to take home to begin building their own at home library collection. Since school library visits have also ceased in most public school environments, CLC strives with these expanded programs to keep books accessible to our students.
