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.

We offer talks and information about the importance of reading, literacy and brain development. Our Books for Babies and Born to Read programs distribute books and information to parents of infants. The READY! for Kindergarten program helps parents prepare their children for success in school.
