Book Harvest provides books to Triangle children in need. We collect new and gently used children's books and help low-income children build home libraries of books that they have chosen – and in the process, to arrive at kindergarten ready to learn, to combat summer learning loss once they are in school, and to self-identify as readers. We believe that books are a vital tool to help all kids succeed in school and in life.
In Book Harvest's first four years, low-income children harvested more than 300,000 books from our programs. At a time when two-thirds of low-income children own not a single book, our goal is to ensure a brighter future for all our children by filling their lives with books.
