About Us

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.
