Read to Know needs books for our youngest kids. In the past year, we have expanded our distribution program with the aim of getting more books into the hands of more children. Every month, we distribute over 550 books to our regular sites in Paterson and Passaic. The vast majority of kids who come to these sites are age 5 and under. Our need is for board books and simple short books such as the Eric Carle books, Dora the Explorer, the Poky Little Puppy and other books for preschoolers. They do not need to be new but in good condition, not torn or written in.
So what are we asking you to do?
If you have children who have outgrown preschool level books, consider donating them.
If you don’t have books in your house, please ask neighbors, friends, or family members.
Call us at 201-445-3176 let us know what you have.
