MANCHESTER >> The Manchester Lions Club has awarded a sponsorship grant to support Preschool Family Literacy Nights, now presented to the community at the Manchester Community Library. This is a partnership between the Library, Manchester Elementary-Middle School, Bennington County Head Start, Manchester House of Pizza, and the Vermont Reading Partners

The Lions Club grant will fund expenses to present four fun-filled, literacy-rich evenings with pizza, stories, and crafts. Every child will take home a book of their own, along with tips for busy families to help promote language development and school readiness with their preschoolers.
