magic-of-readingYour gift to the Library Foundation can provide the resources critical to our Racing to Read early literacy program.  Even a small gift can help purchase books, educational toys, and training materials for parents that foster learning and reading through guided activities and story-times. If a child learns the reading skills that enable him to be ready for kindergarten, the likelihood that he will graduate from high school increases exponentially. Please donate today and give the gift of reading.

The Library Foundation is a nonprofit 501(c)(3) charity, so your gift is tax deductible to the fullest extent provided by law. Please consult your financial or tax adviser to determine the tax advantages of any gifts you are considering.
