Book for Kids Day

Here in Baltimore, we have a wonderful organization, Baltimore Reads, that hosts Book for Kids Day every spring. Teachers, schools, children, and families benefit from the monetary and book donations made by members of our community. I am asking all of my readers to do one thing to help get books in the hand of a child/family in need. Here are some ideas:

  1. Call your local literacy organizations and ask them how you can help.
  2. Donate your gently used children's books to a school in a low-income neighborhood. I'm sure there is always a teacher who will be grateful for them.
  3. Look for a non-profit or family child care center in your area and ask if they need book donations.
  4. Contact a local women and children's shelter and ask them if they are in need of any book donations.
  5. Start your own book drive and donate books to a local foster home or other agency in need.
