Book It Program Brings Book Shelves to Springfield

Reader to Reader is proud to be a sponsor of Square One’s Book It! program.

The program places book shelves with free children’s books throughout Springfield, MA, and gave away over 5,000 books in the first two months.

The book shelves are located in gas stations, early education and child care facilities, and a host of other locations that reach low-income families. Children are able to keep the books, and book ownership has a direct link on reading proficiency and academic achievement. Reader to Reader is providing hundreds of children’s books, and is pleased to join the Irene E. & George A. Davis Foundation, Link to Libraries, and Health New New England as program sponsors.
