Eager Readers

Eager Readers collects gently used books to distribute to elementary school children in the Metro area.

Since 2015 Eager Readers has collected approximately 6000 books and delivered approximately 4586 books to elementary schools in the metro area.

The program is designed to encourage children to read at home, improve reading skills and inspire reading enjoyment. This program has been well received by the elementary schools and families.

Volunteers Needed!

  • We are looking for volunteers to help pick up donated books, inspect and count them. This is typically once or twice a month for 2 hours or on demand.
  • In addition, we need help delivering books to elementary schools. Delivery is twice a year, 8 hours each time.
