Johnna F. - Albany Co Public Health
I'm a maternal child health home visiting nurse in Laramie, Wyoming. I visit with pregnant moms and toddlers up to the age of two helping to support parenting and healthy lifestyle choices for low income families. Books are such a wonderful way to connect with families and they provide positive parenting interactions and promote healthy brain growth in infants and toddlers. Low income families have many challenges and they often cannot afford to buy books for their little ones, so now I will have 50 books to share in my community and I'm truly grateful for this opportunity.

Lindsey C. -New Midrid County R-1 Parents as Teachers

One of the biggest goals of New Madrid County R-1 Parents as Teachers (PAT) is to provide our families with numerous books and help our parents and caregivers get into the habit of reading multiple books to their children every single day. We provide at least one book for each child at every family visit throughout the year, and this generous donation will help us continue getting books into the homes of our PAT families and into the hands of our children throughout the school district, setting them up for success as early as possible. 

Thank you so much again for this generous gift!

Penny S - Community Action Commission of Fayette County (HeadStart Program) 
Winning the books for my classroom is so exciting.  I cannot wait to share them with our students.  I love reading to and with my students and sharing new adventures along with new vocabulary.   Books are a great way to extend a child’s vocabulary and their oral language.  As educators and adults, we need to provide a literacy rich environment for our children.  Having these opportunities for them when they are young will help the children as they continue to grow.  Children that do not have books available to them at home are excited to have books to take home.  We provide books for those children to keep at home if needed.  Thank you again for this wonderful gift to share with our children and families in our program.

Lori P -Children's Advantage

I am SO EXCITED to be the May winner of the build a library! I work for a non-profit Children’s Mental Health Agency. I specifically work with daycare center and preschool teachers and administrators to build social emotional well being for the children and support the needs of teachers and staff. Another role that I have at our agency is providing case management services to families and children 6 years old and younger. In both of these roles, I practice an array of skill building strategies with the children. I often utilize books to help build rapport with children, present a concept that we are working on, and/or build the child’s confidence and sense of self esteem through the characters in the stories.

 Elzbieta K- Brooklyn Public Library

Isn't it a great news to start a new chapter in our wonderful Reading Room activities.

Yes, this year summer is unbelievably hot but children are children and they simply don't care about it. They want to play, read, sing and be with their friends. They will be so excited to receive your gift, especially those who don't have much. Thank you so very much.

Tiffany S. - 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.

Chrissy C. -Outreach Center for Community Resources
Outreach Center for Community Resources is a family center where we are going into families homes to provide support on various issues regarding parenting.  We are continuously educating them on the importance of reading, and instilling in each family that they are their child's first and most important teacher.  Many of the families don't have the means to purchase books, and this will allow us to fill each of our families' homes with books they can share with their children to hopefully develop a love for reading.

I want to thank you for awarding my class such a delightful assortment of books.  Our program is the North Carolina Pre-Kindergarten also known (NC Pre-K). It is a state-funded program, community-based pre-kindergarten program designed to provide 4-year-old children, who may not otherwise be served, with valuable educational experiences for 6.5 hour per day. The books will be used by the children and teachers to enhance literacy in our program. My supervisors were so amazed at the quality and quantity of the literature sent, and I have shared your website and resources with the other teachers in our program. The children were excited to open the box and pulled out all the books. Thank you again. With much gratitude, Cynthia H
