Books 4 Kids
Building Home Libraries
Literacy and Beyond has been building home libraries in St. Clair and Lapeer County schools since 2012. During the 2019-2020 school year, in partnership with the United Way of Lapeer County, we will be distributing one book per month to all K-2nd graders at North Branch Elementary and Weston Elementary in Imlay City. This new focus on "rural" districts will serve approximately 950 children each receiving 10 free high interest books for a total of 9500 books. Research shows that literacy skills improve and the love of reading is fostered when children have home access to books that they are excited to read.
