Did you know that children perform 35-40% better on reading achievement tests when they are given access to books during the summer months in which schools are typically out of session? We wanted to make sure that we were doing our part in bridging this literary gap. So, this past June and July, our goal was to collect as many new and gently used books as we could to pass along to BookSpring so that they could distribute them into the hands of local Austin readers. We are beyond thrilled to report that we donated over 1700 books to BookSpring!!! Yes you read that correctly, 1700 books!!!!
A special thanks to the following businesses who helped with this donation drive:
