BookSpring will continue to offer a Continuum of Literacy Programs designed to reach children from birth through age 12 by building an active and supportive community of readers. We offer these programs through three partner areas: Healthcare (Rx), Education (Ed), and Community-based Organizations (Go). We reach children and families where they live, work, and play through professionals like you that they know and trust.
Map of all Partner Sites:
BookSpring has distributed tens of thousands of books all over Austin and surrounding areas. With your support, you will help ensure that every child in Austin will arrive at kindergarten with the skills they need to learn to read and succeed in school!

Bring BookSpring Programs to the Children and Families You Serve
If you are a community leader, school librarian, teacher, principal, pediatrician, medical professional, or childcare provider interested in promoting literacy with the children and families you reach, we need your help to coordinate our programs for delivery at your location.
While most programs require some fee for participation, you can work with funders to underwrite your fees and we sometimes have special discounts and opportunities for specific areas of need. Applications are generally taken on an annual cycle, and certain qualifications and restrictions apply. Your involvement as a volunteer site coordinator is critical in developing a fully literate future together. Please read more about BookSpringRx, BookSpringEd, and BookSpringGo, and contact the appropriate area partner manager to see how to enroll for our partner services.
