Finish up Strong!
What a year it has been! 

We are drawing to a close for our 2012 Fiscal Year. From the Great Michigan Read Grand Finale, to an unprecedented number of major grant awards and an overwhelming response to our Poetry Out Loud and Arts & Humanities Touring programs, we have enjoyed one of our most successful (and busy!) years in recent memory. Several new staff members, programs and supporters have energized our organization and we can't wait to see what the new year brings.

There are only 13 days left in our fiscal year.
Please help us finish up our banner year with a record amount of support for our exciting programs.

Your donation of $10, $25 or $50 will help us get a jump start on 2013 where we are launching our next Great Michigan Read selection, facilitating two traveling Smithsonian exhibits and expanding our Prime Time Family Reading Time program.
 As always, we appreciate your support and would love to hear from you!

Development Director
