Five town literacy team seeks help creating database
Camden — The Five Towns Literacy Team is undertaking the Literacy for ME state initiative, (maine.gov/doe/literacy-for-me/) and are in the beginning stages of team development and the goal of creating a searchable literacy database for the five towns region of Appleton, Camden, Hope, Lincolnville, and Rockport. This database will allow individuals to search literacy resources available for citizens, birth through adult.
The team will begin cataloging resources at its Monday, Nov. 19 meeting, which will be held at Camden Public Library in the Picker Room at 4:30 p.m.
The literacy team invites any citizens interested in learning more to attend the November meeting, as well as those who wish to share literacy resource information for the database. Information can be shared in a variety of ways: attending the Nov. 19 meeting, forwarding information to firstname.lastname@example.org, or by contacting any of the existing team members.
Current team members are Michelle Gabrielsen, team leader, and Camden-Rockport Middle School literacy coach; Tim Dresser, Five Towns CSD Adult & Community Education director; Amy Hand, Camden Public Library, children’s librarian; Suzanne Hall, Region 8 Mid-Coast School of Technology curriculum coordinator; Carol Hathorne, Hope Elementary School principal; Molly Larson, Rockport Public Library Director; and Elaine Nutter, Five Towns CSD and MSAD 28 superintendent.
