The Connecticut Coalition to End Homelessness is asking children’s librarians across the state to help its be homeful project to end family homelessness by holding Paddington™ Storytimes and marmalade jar fundraisers. During the storytime, which could be held at a public or school library, children would read the beloved story of Paddington, talk about family homelessness in an age-appropriate way, and take part in activities that enable them to express their thoughts.
