Discover. . . giving the gift of reading
The gift of literacy is the gift of a lifetime!
March is National Reading Month, join our church family in supporting literacy in our local community by donating one or more of the eight books from the list link on the top of this page. These books have been selected because of the value they bring to help students develop strong reading skills and habits.
Our goal is to provide at least five copies of each title between our church family and our friends in the community this is very achievable.
Effective literacy skills open the doors to more educational and employment opportunities so that people are able to pull themselves out of poverty and chronic underemployment. In our increasingly complex and rapidly changing technological world, it is essential that individuals continuously expand their knowledge and learn new skills in order to keep up with the pace of change. Please consider donating a book from the list and sharing this with friends and family so others can donate as well.
Donations will be accepted from February 2nd through March 29th.
On March 29th we will celebrate by having Pizza and snacks while we enjoy a church wide story time. Bring your favorite children's book to read aloud for us or to have it read aloud by some else.
The books range in price from about $6.00 to $11.00.
There are several ways for you to donate:
You may order via Amazon.com, Barnes & Noble, Target etc... and have the books shipped to you or directly to the church building c/o "Book Drive".
There will also be a collection bin in the glass foyer of the church building.
You may also make a monetary donation and we can do the shopping for you.
