Supporting our communities during the COVID-19 pandemic
A short letter from April, 2020
Whenever and wherever you read this, we hope you and your loved ones are healthy and well. There is no point in pretending that circumstances aren't tough right now. They are. Thankfully, communities across the nation are coming together to support one another and to keep one another afloat. Thankfully, we have seen so many people turn outwards, with openness and generosity, in order to make the lives of others easier. To those who have turned that kindness toward Books for Kids, we are so grateful. Please know that your efforts are being passed on directly in the form of literacy services to the thousands of children and families we serve.
Below is a summary of the ways we are offering support to our communities now that schools and libraries have closed their doors (at least physically and, for some, completely). As we, like our students, teachers, and families, adapt to these difficult times, we hope the support we are able to offer can provide bright spots of happiness and moments of meaningful education despite the challenges of our present circumstances.
Your Friends at Books for Kids
