The home libraries you helped build last school year made a difference:
- 222,559 books
- 20,297 kids
- 142 schools
- and COUNTLESS moments of reading joy!
Page Ahead Children’s Literacy Program, the leading provider of books and literacy services for children in need in Washington, celebrated a major milestone. The organization distributed its 4-millionth book to Concord International Elementary on June 3.
On June 3, we celebrated a huge milestone: the four-millionth book given away since Page Ahead’s founding in 1990!
We marked the occasion at Concord International Elementary in South Park, where students were receiving their chosen Book Up Summer books to take home for summer reading. The book, All Are Welcome, by Alexandra Penfold and illustrated by Suzanne Kaufman, has a special bookplate identifying it as Page Ahead’s four millionth book and will be added to the Concord school library collection.
Thank you to everyone who helped us celebrate! Read more in the Seattle Public Schools newsletter.
