Rumson, NJ – June 19, 2012

If you’ve ever read a picture book to a child, then you know that William Albert Allard, noted photographer and writer, was correct when he said that “…words and pictures can work together to communicate more powerfully than either alone.”  At Bridge of Books, we agree so we created a video montage to tell our story.  Bridge of Books’ Executive Director Abigail Daly worked with Jeff White of White Custom Media in Fair Haven, New Jersey to tell the foundation’s story in pictures.  Bridge of Book’s mission is to donate new and gently used books to underprivileged and at-risk children throughout New Jersey to encourage a love of reading and literacy skills.  We invite you to watch Bridge of Books in action and see the joy that books provide.  Click here.

About The Bridge of Books Foundation

The Bridge of Books Foundation is an all-volunteer 501(c)(3) located in New Jersey Bridge of Books’ mission is to provide an ongoing source of books to underprivileged and at-risk children throughout New Jersey in order to support literacy skills and to encourage a love of reading. Since 2003, BoB has donated 300,000 books to more than 100 agencies serving at-risk children across New Jersey.

The Foundation generally acquires books through book drives and individual donations.  Bridge of Book operates in accordance with several core beliefs: all children should have ongoing and ready access to age appropriate books; books in the home have the power to change lives – providing an understanding of the world, encouraging imagination and promoting dreams; and sharing books strengthens communities. 
As Ms. Daly is fond of saying, “Good books should never be read only once!”
