Fellows Project:

Every year the TPHA Fellows coordinate a donation drive at our conference to support a local non-profit or community program.  This year we will be hosting a children’s book drive to support two great programs with the San Antonio Public Library Foundation.
 
The Born to Read program promotes early childhood literacy development through distributing pre-K books to the community.  Born to Read impacts children and families in Bexar County by encouraging parents and caregivers to read to children at the earliest stages of life.  Board and picture books for infants, babies, and toddlers are needed.
 
The Literacy Caravan is a mobile classroom with spaces for story time, creative exploration, and motor skills development.  Every kid leaves with a book when they visit the Literacy Caravan.  Books for kids up to age 12 are needed.  Fiction and non-fiction are welcome.  Quality paperbacks are especially appreciated
 
Information about both programs can be found on the foundation’s website: https://www.saplf.org/.
 
We are a month away from our conference so start collecting baby and children’s books now.  Did you have a favorite book growing up?  Is there a kid’s book that inspired(s) you?  Let’s help spread the power of books.
