Each year, The Library hosts the annual Joan Y. Leopold Children's Book Week Celebration. This celebration, made possible by the Joan Y. Leopold Endowment Fund, is designed to connect children with books, and encourage, reading, learning and imagination through author events and other programs during mid-November.
Last year, The Library was able to provide free copies of the featured book, Ladybug Girl and Bumblebee Boy, to more than 155 children. Receiving a book to keep, take home, and explore over and over again was a huge success and we’d like to make it a part of the program every year. Besides the sheer joy it brings the children, studies have shown that the number of books in the home is one of the strongest predictors of how well a child will succeed in school.
You can help! Your donation of $250 will put free books into the hands of 25 children this year. To be a Children's Book Week book sponsor, please complete the form below and return it with your gift by October 15, 2011.
