Go: Building Early Literacy in the Community

If you are a representative of a community-based organization that works with families and children facing life challenges, you are eligible to apply to incorporate BookSpring’s early literacy programs for your clients and beneficiaries. We believe books build literacy and resilience in families and children, we’d like to work with you and your organization or agency to spread these benefits throughout our community. Please consider partnering with us on the following programs:

BookSpring Days

BookSpring Days are designed to be a one day, high-impact literacy celebration event where each family can participate in motivational activities, spend time in our Pop-Up Reading Room, and bring home no less than three quality children’s books of their choosing. We work closely with each partner to customize their BookSpring Day to best suit the needs of their organization and clients.

Parent Book Clubs and Training of Trainers

Parent Book Clubs are hands-on literacy training programs for parents of toddlers (ages 3 & 4) that improve literacy skills of both parents and children. Through role modeling and guided practice, we encourages parents to read in family settings with their children to enhance their ability to succeed in school.

ReBook

The ReBook program places donated gently used children’s books into the hands of children in our community. We provides labeled, sorted and distributed books to organizations that work with children and families in qualifying disadvantaged areas. Medical clinics, community outreach events, children’s shelters, faith based organizations, are all welcome to apply for this free service.
