The reading foundation does this important work by educating and reminding children, youth and families about the importance of reading though community awareness campaigns and family education programming and by distributing free books so that every family, every child has the tools they need to read and succeed.

The reading foundation distributes over 50,000 books each year and with each book they share the important reading message.The funds raised at Books by the Bay will enable the reading foundation to continue its important literacy work. Please show your support by
