WENATCHEE — The North Central Regional Library has been awarded a $109,000 grant from the Paul G. Allen Family Foundation to expand its literacy programs for young children.

The grant will let the library double the impact of its early literacy programs and hire a new librarian to serve low-income, at-risk children, said Angela Morris, NCRL assistant director. The new librarian will bring books and storytime programs to facilities outside of the library and will teach parents, childcare workers and other caregivers early literacy skills.
