The Baker County Community Literacy Coalition has received a $49,122 Early Literacy Grant.

The grant will benefit families with children from birth to age 6, said Jim Tomlinson, community literacy coordinator.

"The purpose of the grant is to improve children's early literacy skills in order to increase readiness for kindergarten, close opportunity and achievement gaps, and to ensure that all children are reading on grade level by the end of third grade," an announcement of the award stated.
