“As State Librarian, I applaud these public libraries on their exceptional programs that highlight some of the best early literacy programs being offered around the state,” said Chute. “All show that it’s not the size of the budget of the library that counts, but the desire of these libraries to encourage young children to experience the joy of reading.”
