‘Stop Summer Slide’ Book Distributions

Our flagship program, Stop Summer Slide!, provides 12 books per child in the elementary schools we serve. We provide a collection of exciting, contemporary books to children who may not have access to them over summer break, leading to them falling grade levels behind their peers in reading comprehension. Each year, Books for Keeps serves:

Elementary Schools Visited
Students Served
Books Distributed Annually

2023 Spring Book Distributions!

Join Books for Keeps this Spring for Book Distributions at your neighborhood school! We’ve now selected dates to attend each of our service schools and need your help staffing each one to help get more books to more kids in the 5 counties we serve.

Reach out to Info@booksforkeeps.org for more info!
