  • 68% of America’s 4th graders read below a proficient level. 82% of those children are from low-income families.
  • A student not reading by 3rd grade is 4 times more likely to drop out of high school.
  • 61% of low-income families have no age-appropriate books in their homes.

Join us as we learn more about literacy in our community and set a plan in motion to help our children. We can start by building home libraries! Please consider donating new or gently used children’s books. Bring your books and a friend to the program!
