Help hit the goal by September 30th to provide books year round!

These are some examples of the high-interest and age-appropriate books that were given away as part of our Build a Home program last school year during the pandemic.

What memories does back to school season bring back for you? The sound of a school bus braking? The weight of new school supplies in your backpack? The smell of the season starting to turn?

How about the thrill of new books waiting to be read?

Ensuring that young students have access to a wide variety of high-interest books is one of the most important ways you can support their growing minds. Our Build a Home Library program provides multiple brand new books for each Pre-K student in our programs to help grow their home collection each school year, and we need your help to keep the program fully funded.

"Books for Kids Story Time with their great librarians, as well as the many books they provided our children, made a tremendous difference in our ability to keep education alive."
