RIF motivates children and families to read together through book ownership, motivational activities, and family involvement in children’s reading. RIF is implemented in childcare centers, preschools, elementary schools, high schools (with expectant and parenting teens), and through home-based parenting programs of other nonprofits.
Reach Out and Read promotes early literacy and school readiness in pediatric exam rooms by giving new books to children and advice to parents about the importance of reading aloud.
Parent BookClubs are six week literacy training programs that improve literacy skills of both parents and children. Through role modeling, BookSpring encourages parents to read in family settings with their children to enhance their ability to succeed in school.
This program places donated children’s books into the hands of children in our community. Donated books are carefully sorted and distributed to children in low income medical clinics, community outreach events, children’s shelters, faith based organizations, and libraries in economically disadvantaged areas.
The BookSpring Read-A-Thon encourages community service and sharing the joy of book ownership with children in our community. During the two week event, children and book lovers read and collect donations based on the amount of pages read. Proceeds support BookSpring’s early literacy programs in the Greater Austin area.
