HOOKED ON BOOKS!
This project is designed to promote literacy for preschoolers. The Project is made up of 1,000 books that are divided into 100 canvas bags, with each bag containing 10 different books. Parents sign out a bag for 2 weeks, read the books with their child, and return it for another bag.
The goal is for every child to read 1,000 books by age 6. Come in and sign up!
