Vermont’s Literacy Champion
Dorothy Douglas, First Lady of Vermont


Dorothy Douglas, First Lady of Vermont, reads to a classroom

Literacy is the most essential skill and the gateway to all learning. The earlier our children become strong readers the more likely they are to succeed in school and in all endeavors throughout their lives. That is why I have made literacy one of my priorities as First Lady, and I know this is a priority for Jim as well.

It has been a pleasure working with the Vermont Humanities Council and Verizon to promote and celebrate the joy and power of literacy. Our message is clear — reading helps build better lives. By working together, we can ensure a state of adults and children who love to read.

So, please, Check Into Literacy today.
