Invest in books for children across North Carolina

January 5 — February 5, 2018

Fifty percent of NC first graders do not meet reading proficiency standards—one of the reasons the Institute for Emerging Issues is partnering with Reach Out and Read Carolinas to host a state-wide book drive. Reach Out and Read cares about giving young children a foundation for success, and early reading proficiency is linked to a child’s success in school and life – a key outcome highlighted at the 2018 Emerging Issues Forum, kidoNomiCs, February 5—6, in Raleigh.

Across North Carolina, more than 800 doctors and nurses support some 200,000 families in 250 medical clinics through Reach Out and Read.

To make a difference in the lives of families and children through Reach Out and Read, medical providers must have a consistent supply of high-quality, developmentally-aligned children’s books. By making a donation below, you will be building children’s libraries, helping to make sure early literacy and language development is a priority in every home across North Carolina.

100% of donations are tax-deductible, and we thank you for your partnership!

Do you have gently-used books you would like to donate to a Reach Out and Read program? Click here for book drive locations.
