Kids get free books for summer reading

Posted on July 7, 2014 |
By Addison Independent



Bridportbooks2.jpg

ADDISON COUNTY — Most children living in poverty do not have any books at home, a sobering statistic that makes these students more likely to struggle in school and drop out before graduation. In addition, many students in this rural county do not have easy access to a library during the summer months when school is not in session. Yet research shows that reading during the summer can counter the academic summer setback students often experience when they return to school in the fall.

By Angelo S. Lynn



What does it mean to be a festival at 36?

It means a lot of creative energy, hard work, restless nights and thousands of volunteer hours have been invested in the festival’s success over the past 36 years.

It means committees researching musical acts for the twice-nightly performances, plus magicians and a whole other set of performers for the kid shows each noon. It means reaching out to them, getting rejections, negotiating prices, and finally booking the 17 acts each year.
