ALL our programs promote reading and library media center resources, but because they tie in directly with the curriculum they are easy to sell to principals and can even be co-funded with other funds (counselors, red ribbon money, title one funds, local funds, discretionary funds, PTA, etc.). Check out our web site for more information on our certified presenters, our diverse program offerings, raving testimonials, and to see some of the thousands of schools where we have presented before.
