Help the Library Foundation turn $5,000 into $10,000 for the Annie Busch Fund for Early Literacy! Your tax-deductible donation to this endowment fund on May 5 will be doubled, up to a total of $5,000, through an endowment challege grant made possible through the Community Foundation of the Ozarks. But, in order to receive the challenge grant funds, we must raise the first $5,000. Here is a direct link to Donate on May 5.
Early literacy is what children know about reading and writing before they learn how to read and write. Reading, talking, singing and playing with kids from birth makes learning to read easier!
The Annie Busch Fund for Early Literacy supports Springfield-Greene County Library District’s early literacy programs at 10 library branches and dozens of outreach sites throughout Springfield and Greene County. Early literacy programs take place almost every day within the Library District.
