Vermont Center for the Book will have a new home! Over the coming weeks in late 2021, the Vermont Humanities Council will become the new home for Vermont’s State Center, an affiliate of the Center for the Book in the Library of Congress.
In the meantime, please listen to Andrea Wang and Vermont’s own Jason Chin talk about their new picture book Watercress. Watercress was selected as one of the Great Reads featured at the Library of Congress’ National Book Festival.
For over 25 years the Vermont Center for the Book (formerly the Vermont Reading Project) not only helped change the lives of thousands of young children and their families, but it empowered librarians, teachers and child-care providers to use picture books, conversation, and standards-based activities to transform the learning lives of thousands of young children all over the country.
