FALL-ing into books!
Posted by STAIR-Annapolis on November 17, 2021
Have you heard the news? STAIR-Annapolis is reaching young readers with an exciting new initiative: STAIR Seasonal Book Bundles!
We recently received a MASSIVE donation of beautiful Simon & Schuster children's books from a generous donor. Actually, a number of STAIR supporters had a hand in making sure these books reached us from their former home in New York City. The donation included fiction and nonfiction, books about nature and animals, books about families and neighborhoods, funny books, sweet books, sports books, biographies and history books, and some of the best recently-published children's books.
What to do with so many beautiful books? Share them, of course!
While we continue to thoughtfully plan for a safe return to in-person programming, we want to stay connected to our Anne Arundel County Public Schools partners and our students. Gifting new books for home libraries through STAIR Seasonal Book Bundles is a great way to do just that.
Earlier this month, STAIR staff delivered Fall Book Bundles to our Reading Specialist friends at all 12 elementary schools we serve. It was so nice to see so many friendly (masked!) faces on our rounds and to take a few moments to check in with these hard-working teachers who support developing readers every day.
Reading Specialists will distribute the donated books to students in need of reading support to help ensure they have beautiful new books to read at home.
Seasonal Book Bundle deliveries are already schedule for January 2022, March, and May. We're really excited about this project and happy to have an opportunity to safely support young readers all year long.
If you'd like to make a contribution to help us purchase even more books for students' home libraries, we invite you to consider supporting STAIR's Annual Appeal or joining us on Facebook and Instagram this #GivingTuesday, November 30.
