You know that reading to children is essential - but how can you help make that happen in our community?
Join the Foundation for Giving Tuesday as we support the JCLS's Outreach to Child Care program and help give books to kids 0-5.
Outreach to Child Care is a free book delivery service offered by Jackson County Library Services to child care sites that care for four or more preschool children on a full-time basis. Library staff and volunteers deliver bags filled with age-appropriate books to child care homes and centers each month. Providers can also request bags with special content, such as Spanish-language theme books, board books for babies, or CDs. Library staff can even provide a storytime or family literacy program. Learn more about Outreach to Child Care.
This program, partially supported by the Foundation, can help give children a lifelong advantage by developing a love for books and reading. It helps to brighten and enhance the early literacy skills of hundreds of children throughout our community.
