Books for Kids

We want to ensure that all children and families have access to books. Our book van visits low-income housing units, schools, after-school programs, and community events to promote reading. Contact us to schedule a stop or host a Literacy Bookshelf.

Reading Engagement

We provide story times and literacy programs that engage children in reading. Visit our Calendar page to find out where SSRF programs are in your community or contact us to request one.
