|January 2022||Deanne M.||The Parenting
|We are so grateful to have won the giveaway! We are a Parents as Teachers Blue Ribbon affiliate, and we promote early childhood literacy with all our home visitation families by reading at each visit and providing at least one book per month to each family to build their libraries at home. We also have 8 community story time events which participants receive a copy of the book for their home. These books will be a great addition to our early childhood literacy efforts. Thank you so much, Books by the Bushel!|

|June 2022||Sarah Chy||Marshfield Area United Way||We are so grateful to be this month’s Build-A-Library Giveaway winners! We have multiple avenues through which we give away books to children in our community -- a book swap at a local elementary school, a partnership with our local hospital that distributes books at well-child visits, and – our newest addition – a Little Free Library! The books we receive from this giveaway will help us to stock the shelves for these initiatives and continue getting books into the hands of children in our community.|
|July 2022||Lynn Payton||Springfield School District||
The Springfield City School district will use these books to enhance the literacy development of our most vulnerable children. These books will be distributed by Parent Educators who will build a literacy lesson around each book for families to use in the home.
We are so excited to partner with the Books by the Bushel family. Thank you!
|August 2022||Melissa Brodbeck||UPMC Jameson Children’s Advocacy Center||
We are an Early Head Start home visiting program and we share books with our families during each of our weekly visits. We also do socializations twice monthly and as I already mentioned we share a special book related to the theme. A parent is always invited to read the book to the group and the children love seeing a caregiver do the storytelling.
Thank you so much for this opportunity. The books will mean so much to our families.
|September 2022||Tiffany Slack||Matthews Christian Library/COS Kids Child Development Center||
These will be wonderful to use in our story times for the community and for the children in our childcare center classrooms. Our child development center serves anyone in the community but has a special outreach to single parents, so many of the children served come from single-parent homes. Every week I do one community story time and 6 story times for the childcare classes. We also supply the classrooms with new books every week to support their work with the children, in addition to providing the books for those in our community to check out.
