In-kind grants of a storytelling presentation and new children's books to Vermont and New Hampshire organizations or facilities that provide summer programming to low-income, rural, and at-risk children. The presentations are performed by professional authors and storytellers and are designed to maintain children's literacy skills during summer vacation.

CLiF presenters tell stories, read aloud from books, and share their love of words, reading, and writing. Every child who participates chooses two books to keep from a wide selection of brand-new children’s books.

CLiF works to identify nutrition programs, low-income summer camps, and other organizations that serve kids at risk of experiencing summer slide, the loss of reading skills gained during the school year that occurs during summer break. CLiF aims to inspire a love of reading and writing among low-income, at-risk, and rural children up to age 12 throughout New Hampshire and Vermont.
