Spread the Word Nevada
Spread the Word Nevada is a children’s literacy nonprofit dedicated to advancing early childhood literacy by placing books into the hands and homes of children within Southern Nevada’s at-risk, low income communities. While developing a love of reading, these libraries promote future academic achievement and self-confidence, which impacts lifelong success.
Our four programs include:
- placing books in the homes monthly (Kids to Kids)
- family literacy programs monthly (Breakfast/Snack time with Books)
- one-on-one mentoring in schools (Books and Buddies)
- summer reading program (Books on Break).
Since 2001, Spread the Word Nevada has adopted 54 Clark County Nevada schools, distributed more than 4.5 million gently used and/or new books to more than 505,000 low-income youth in Southern Nevada.
