HELP CHILDREN IN ERIE COUNTY BEAT THE SUMMER SLIDE BY DONATING NEW OR GENTLY USED BOOKS!
Studies show that access to books during the summer prevents a drastic loss in reading skills - especially for kids in need. Books donated should be new or gently used and for children ages 5-14 (grades K-8) only.
