For less than $20 per month, the Adopt-a-Reader Program matches you with a child in need in Eagle County. On your behalf, we send one book per month to the youngest and most vulnerable members of our community, supporting early literacy skills that create lifelong success.
What educators are saying:
"Thanks so much for this wonderful program and allowing our students to be excited about reading. It is so exciting to see them open them-it is like a holiday each time." Nita, School Counselor
"I observed the children who benefit from your book program grabbing books from the shelves, and the parents were using books as a quiet activity for their children. This is honestly something that I have never observed in 10 years," says one educator involved with the program. "The book program is seriously working and changing lives and parenting behaviors."
What parent's are saying:
"It's one of the best days of the month when my son, who is five, receives a new book that is his forever. Thank you for all that you do." - Heather, mother in Eagle CO
