Schools and libraries, get ready for Lit-Kits

Members of the Northwest Indiana Literacy Coalition and its partners, along with members of Books to Bridge the Region, will again deliver "Lit-Kits" to schools and libraries throughout Lake, Porter, Jasper, LaPorte, Newton, Starke & Pulaski counties. The Lit-Kits will contain red noses, bookmarks, and one or more of this year's Books to Bridge titles. Look for it near the end of August/beginning of September.

NWILC celebrates Time Out for Reading on Fri., Sept. 30 from 10 to 10:15 a.m. Read either silently or aloud, by yourself or in a group.

Welcome to Books to Bridge the Region

Books to Bridge the Region is a reading initiative encompassing the Northwest Indiana counties of Jasper, Lake, LaPorte, Newton, Porter, Pulaski and Starke.

Books to Bridge uses a themed approach with selections at three reading levels so that families can read together and readers of all ages can enjoy the conversations generated by these books.

Our theme for 2009 is Family Matters. The titles are: The Ride of Our Lives by Mike Leonard; The Watsons Go to Birmingham- 1963 by Christopher Paul Curtis, and A Day with Wilbur Robinson by William Joyce. Books to Bridge runs during October 2009.
