Cranston library gets Indian association grant

Posted 4/19/13

CRANSTON – The Cranston Public Library has been awarded a “Talk Story: Sharing Stories, Sharing Culture,” $500 grant awarded in a joint program from the American Indian Library Association and the Asian/Pacific American Librarians Association.

“Talk Story” is a literacy program that reaches out to Asian Pacific American and American Indian/Alaska Native children and their families.

It explores and celebrates those ethnicities through books, oral traditions, and art to provide an interactive, enriching experience.

The Cranston Public Library Youth Services Department will offer a three-part family literacy program targeting Asian students and their families using cultural literature at the library in October 2013. Asian children enrolled in Gladstone, Edgewood Highlands, and Eden Park schools will be recruited for the program. The grant also will enable the library to continue to build its collection of Asian and Asian-American literature.
