It’s bazaar time for the Eagle Valley

A local dad reads the book "Abuela" with his daughter at the Eagle Public Library. The Literacy Project of Eagle County was recently awarded a $15,000 grant from the Vail Valley Rotary Clubs to expand their “Raising a Reader” preschool literacy program. The award is comprised of grants from the Vail, Edwards and Eagle Rotary Clubs, along with a matching grant from Rotary District 5470.The Raising a Reader program, which impacts Eagle County’s youngest residents, provides books, preschool teacher training, engagement support and library connections that will not only significantly improve child literacy, but strengthen families and empower a generation of children to read, learn and succeed. The rotary grant infusion will allow The Literacy Project to expand the Raising a Reader program into all 10 of the Eagle County Schools preschools.
