Invest in Childhood Literacy

Join the Flying Book Society to help BookSpring build early literacy in Central Texas.

BookSpring’s Central Texas Reading Survey shows a startling 46% of Central Texas homes with children 12 and under have fewer than 20 books at home. Children growing up in homes with at least 20 books get 3 more years of schooling than children from bookless homes.

Joining the Flying Book Society allows you to give monthly while providing a long-lasting home library for families with children facing economic hardship.

Your Monthly Gift Provides a Steady Flow of Books

One of the best ways to invest in childhood literacy in Central Texas is to join the Flying Book Society Monthly Giving Program. As a Flying Book Society member, you can give as little as $10 a month (less than 2 cups of coffee!), $100 a month (less than an electric bill!), or even come up with a gift amount that is tailored to your budget!

$100/month = 480 books to 160 children
$50/month = 240 books to 80 children
$20/month = 96 books to 32 children

Monthly Giving Matters

Imagine the lasting positive impact your monthly gift can have on families facing economic hardship right here in our community:

  • It helps us plan for the future. Monthly giving helps BookSpring expand capacity and reach more of the 80,000 kids living in poverty in Central Texas.
  • It leverages our buying power to get more high-quality books into the hands of kids. We provide up to ten books for the purchase cost of one retail book.
  • It increases our overall capacity to serve more and more children each year.
