The Literacy Empowerment Foundation (LEF), a 501(c)3 non-profit organization, invites schools and other literacy projects to apply for free books for Read Across America Day.
LEF Reading Resource Project books are available in a limited quantity on a first come, first served basis. Orders must be received by February 11, 2012.
Reading Resource Project books come in sets of 100 books per set. There will be at least 10 different titles in each set. Reading levels are available for Pre-K through Second Grade. Book selection and quantity is dependent upon availability, so there is no guarantee of specific titles. Books are sorted and shipped as close to a project's needs as possible, with regard to reading level and topic. Recipients merely pay shipping, handling, and administrative costs, which is only $0.68 per softcover book ($68 per set of 100 books). Most sets are shipped within 2 weeks.
The Reading Resource Project is an ongoing program that runs throughout the year. The program distributes softcover books FREE of charge for Read Across America Day, National Drop Everything and Read Day, Children's Book Week, International Children's Book Day, and other literacy programs. During the past year, LEF has distributed over 3,000,000 books to schools all across the country for Read Across America Day and other literacy projects. Visit the LEF website for more information.
