Program Overview

Through a variety of activities, such as book giving,hosting read aloud sessions, and pairing book pals at different schools, we are looking to really impact literacy rates in impoverished communities in the greater Atlanta area. We are enthusiastic about the potential impact that getting books into the hands and homes of children in North America can have. Our list of projects through Reading out of Poverty include:

· Pop-up libraries: We organize and set up books and bookshelves in waiting rooms of health centers, community centers and other popular areas where children and parents go.

· Holiday Gift Giving: We give every child we are associated with two new books for Christmas and when possible, encourage their parent or guardian to stop in, choose the books, and gift wrap them.
· Parent Mentoring: We work together with parents to highlight the importance of literacy and help establish daily reading.

· Read Aloud: Some of our volunteers go to clinics, schools or community centers and read to children.
· End-of-School Book Giving: We encourage children in our partner schools to self-select a dozen books to read over the summer. Research shows that kids who self-select books for the summer improved their reading skills.
