I've never seen so many books

“I've never seen so many books”
--Danielle A. Pinette, 10

I have great news! Just last week we donated 15,000 brand new children’s books to inner-city schools in Springfield, Massachusetts, so thousands of children could have books of their own.

For many of these children, these are the first books they have ever owned.

I wish you could have been there with us as the smiling children celebrated the arrival of the books.

Reading starts with having a book you love to read. It starts with well-stocked school libraries and classrooms.

Someone has to look out for the schools in low-income communities that have no resources. That is our mission. Week in and week out, Reader To Reader is working to get books into the hands of children all across the United States.

We know that books fill minds with wonder and open horizons.

We need your financial support to help us meet the needs of an ever-growing list of schools and community libraries.

Please support our spring fundraising campaign.

Your contribution is critical to our success.

You can donate right now online www.readertoreader.org/donate.htm
Or donations can be mailed to:

Reader To Reader, Inc.
c/o Cadigan Center

I thank you in advance for your support.
