Spring (or pollen) is in the air, which means it’s once again time for our annual book distributions! We are excited to announce that the distribution dates for our 2023 Stop Summer Slide Book program have been finalized, and now we need your help to get more books to more kids!

If you’ve helped out before, welcome back! If you’re new to book distributions, just know that it’s the most magical time of the year for our team and we absolutely adore sharing it with you – our community!

During our visits, we will be assisting students in selecting books to take home and keep, forever! These books are carefully selected to ensure that they are engaging, age-appropriate, and reflective of diverse experiences and backgrounds. Students are also surveyed each year to make sure BFK continues to provide books we know they’re interested in. We believe that every child deserves access to high-quality books and our school visits are one way we strive to make that happen.

We will be visiting these schools on the following dates:

Oglethorpe Avenue Clarke April 13th-14th
Freeman Warren TBD
Barnett Shoals Clarke April 18th-19th
J.J. Harris Clarke April 19th-20th

    Thank you so much for providing these books to our children. My youngest granddaughter is so thrilled with her new books.
