Review for Books for Keeps, Athens, GA, USA
I've donated and volunteered with Books for Keeps for the past 4 years. My first year helping out with book distributions at an Athens elementary school, I heard one young student say to another, "This is just like Christmas, only better!". That hooked me. The purpose of this program is to give young children a chance to stay ahead academically through access to summer reading. But the heart of Books for Keeps lies in the simple truth that children will know the magical wonder of reading if we can remove barriers to owning their own books.
