Free Books for Children

NEWS

 

The Books on Wheels program of the First Book organization has partnered with the Community Caring Council of Southeast Missouri to bring free children’s books to kids in need. There are no geographical restrictions on who can register - though books must be picked up in Cape Girardeau. Anyone who works with or helps at-risk children can register to receive free books, this includes educators, Optimist and Zonta clubs, workers at school districts, early childhood programs, military-family support programs, libraries and museums, shelters and clinics, faith-based organizations, after-school programs, and others who work with children in need. So far 500 have registered, but the organization needs 2,000 in order to deliver books.  To learn more and to register click here.
