BookStop delivers summer reading fun to local kids

Special delivery! United Way's BookStop visits a community near you this summer.

The BookStop is a free, pop-up book fair that will visit three to six locations in a given community over the course of one day. Each stop will offer free children’s books, kids entertainment and free community resources for families, including public library sign-ups.

The project’s goal is to promote childhood literacy, strengthen partnerships between community members and organizations and get kids excited about school.

Visit an upcoming BookStop near you. All are welcome. Kids can bring a book to trade or just pick out one for themselves!
