Thanks so much to CLiF for all they have done for our youth in and surrounding Salisbury, NH.
Did you know that on top of the CLiF grant Salisbury Free Library also received a mini grant to increase reading in youth 9-14. This is how Pizza and Pages was created. A Youth Book Group consisting of 3rd, 4th and 5th graders met once a month during the school year to talk about literature with their classmates. Thanks again CLiF for this great opportunity!

 

Library Bags! $10 each, to benefit the library! We only have five left in green!
