Children need access to books 365 days a year. Period. If you work with kids who need books or if you are looking for a good home for the books that your kids have outgrown, we are here to help – 365 days a year.
The number of books in a home is often a better predictor of a child’s educational success than the educational level of the child’s parents. Children need to have books over the summer in order to prevent loss of academic gains from the previous school year. Well developed literacy skills are the building blocks of a good education. Consistent and ongoing access to books will both support the development of strong literacy skills and expose children to the world and all that is possible!
These are some of the many reasons why we collect books 365 days a year and why we distribute books 365 days a year. These are some of the many reasons why the Bridge of Books Foundation was started in the first place and why we need your ongoing support.
If you are in any way involved with children who need access to books, please contact us to request a donation of books. We have ongoing relationships with many service providers because we know that kids need ongoing access to books. We want our books to go home with the kids who need them so that they can start to build their own collections.
We need to know who you are, how many children you serve and their ages. Let’s start the conversation today to get books to your kids. Request Books.
