Last year, we delivered approximately 3,500 books per week to more than 40 bookshelves throughout Miami-Dade County. These books are free for the taking by children and their caregivers. This year, we are significantly expanding our operation. Thanks to additional funding from The Children’s Trust, we can deliver 1,300 more books per week to 15 new bookshelves throughout the County. That’s an additional 68,250 books, for a grand total of 250,250 free books in children’s hands every year.
Help us reach this goal by donating books or money.
