Adopt-A-School Program

As part of our mission to spread children's literature, the CLC has recently decided to collaborate with local schools to help spread the Centre's contagious love for reading. As part of this project, Centre staff visits that year's selected school to read literature to the students. The children are also provided with opportunities to attend age-specific presentations by noted authors or illustrators.
