This weekend marked 1year since we lost our Director Dr. William Teale. We thought you would enjoy the picture above, which highlighted his love of adventure, exploring different countries and cultures!

Tribute to Bill Video:

Bill’s legacy to early childhood, literacy and life-long learning lives on through all of YOUR team’s work with the community. UIC College of Education is working on establishing a library collection or a scholarship fund in Bill’s name. We will keep you posted as we gain more information.

We will also continue to honor Bill through an annual CFL BILL’s BOOK BONANZA. His wife, Junko, is committed to providing additional books from his personal collection.

You will be hearing from the Center for Literacy soon for the 2019 Bill’s Book Bonanza.
