Go: Building Early Literacy in the Community

We partner with community based organizations that work with children and families to provide early literacy programs.

Reading regularly with young children stimulates optimal patterns of brain development and strengthens parent-child relationships at a critical time in child development. Reading helps build language, literacy, and social emotional skills that last a lifetime. Please consider partnering with us on the following programs:

Early Books for Me

Early Books for Me is our early childhood program which serves children in local Head Starts and child development centers. Teachers and volunteers motivate children to read with exciting literacy-related activities and children choose books to keep and take home.

Parent Book Clubs

Parent Book Club is a hands-on literacy training program for parents of toddlers (ages 3 & 4) that models and provides guided practices to improve literacy skills of both parents and children.

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 mobile 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.

ReBook

ReBook places donated gently used children’s books into the hands of children in our community through organizations that work with children and families in qualifying disadvantaged areas.

Programs target children 12 and under and their parents. The results are a critical mass of books at home over time and positive literacy experiences for children and families.
