Read to Learn Books For Free

Read to Learn Books for Free is a program of The Children’s Trust in partnership with Miami Book Fair at Miami Dade College. It encourages children and parents to read together by placing bookshelves full of free books in locations throughout Miami-Dade County where they visit together often, including clinics and doctors’ offices, the Juvenile Justice Center, and Community Service Centers—40 locations in the first year, and we are hoping to grow. We have created vibrant signage inviting the children to take a book and keep it. We are committed to restocking the bookshelves regularly, keeping them tidy and full of wonderful books. In 2016, we delivered a total of 185,001 books to 40 book shelf sites, which averages about 3,558 books per week. The program aims to exceed that in the coming year.
