East Berlin Community Library to Receive National Award

The East Berlin Community Library will receive the Baker & Taylor Audio Music/Video Product Award in support of a project named “TeleText,” a combination of television and text.

The library’s goal is to create a subtitled video collection for children. This specific collection is designed to strengthen literacy and language skills in children with reading difficulties, with speech or hearing impairments, with developmental delays, and for children learning English as a second language. The library hopes to
use the TeleText collection to bridge the achievement gap and help children in the community who struggle with basic literacy skills. Learn more about Baker & Taylor’s Audio/Video Product Award.
