For just $60, the Adopt-a-Reader Program matches you with a child in need in Eagle County. On your behalf, we send one book per month for 3 months 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."
