Book Voyagers

Partnering with libraries, schools, and non-profits, Book Voyagers provides families and children enrichment experiences that share the joy of reading and spark a passion for lifelong learning. Programs include multi-part book discussion series, storytelling events, performances, writing and cartooning workshops and other literature-based activities. All programs are designed to help parents and children build reading skills and connect with their communities. Both the Connecticut Alliance School District list (the thirty most struggling districts in the state) and the Adjusted Equalized Net Grand List per Capita (AENGLC) which ranks towns by wealth are used in sire selection. By prioritizing economically challenged areas, extra resources and opportunities are made available to families with the least access.
