Literacy Mid-South Book Drive

We want to give Literacy Mid-South 1,000 books (or more!) for their Read901 program this holiday season!

 

Read901 is a citywide campaign to increase the number of students reading proficiently by the end of 3rd grade. Currently, almost 80% of 3rd graders are not reading at grade level. This past summer, more than 3,000 students received quality summer programming and each student was given at least 3 books to take home. Please help us ensure that every child has access to quality books so they can continue their reading journey.

 

So let's do this!

Pick a title or two from the suggested list below, or pick out your favorite kids book (K-5) -- just let us know in the comments field when checking out which books you'd like to be donated to Literacy mid-South and we'll take care of the rest.

 

Help us show our thanks for all Literacy Mid-South does year-round do to help grow readers of all ages in our community.
