We’re partnering with the United Way and Read Aloud 15 Minutes on their upcoming book drive! Their goal is to collect 1,000 new or gently used books to be donated to families in need right here in Orange County. By now we all know the importance of reading to your child every day, even if it’s only for 15 minutes. In fact, in a statement by the National Association for the Education of Young People (NAEYC), they stress that “The single most important activity for building the understandings and skills essential for reading success appears to be reading aloud to children.”
Look for our book donation box in the lobby. We’ll be collecting new or gently used books until March 1st, 2017. Thank you! For more information, please visit the Read Aloud 15 Minutes website or the United Way.
