Groton Public Library, Final Performance Report for Library Services and Construction Act (LSCA) Title VI, Library Literacy Program.
Benkert, Alan G.; Glover, Jane
This final performance report for Groton Public Library's Project LIFT (Libraries Involve Families Today), an outreach program designed to promote literacy among low-income families, begins with a section that provides quantitative data. The role of the library in the project is then described; participating organizations and sites used are listed; and Project LIFT is discussed. An attached narrative report, written by Natalie J. Hinshaw, discusses the accomplishments of Project LIFT during 1992-93, focusing on the activities of a roving storyteller who conducted story hours at Head Start, day care, and family support centers, and presented workshops for adult audiences. Anecdotal evidence is used to show that the project realized its goals--to motivate children, parents, and caregivers to read together and to reach adults who have reading difficulty by allowing books to flow to them through their preschoolers. Statistics are included on sites visited, registrants, story hours, and other programs. Proposed and actual expenditures are compared. (MES)
