In 2002, the Reading Recovery Council of North America and Verizon identified their shared interest in creating a digital library for early literacy information. The Reading Recovery Council of North America contributed the early literacy expertise and early literacy documents. Verizon contributed its strong corporate commitment to literacy combined with a deep understanding of the digital world. With mutual goals established, the Verizon Foundation funded the planning, development, and initial operation of the CELI Web site for three years. Currently, RRCNA maintains CELI for the benefit of its members and for the general public.
