YOU built 19,216 home libraries through Book Up Summer!

Explore Page Ahead's fall 2022 update to our community.

More than 19,000 Washington kids came back to school this fall after spending the summer reading 12 brand-new books that they chose themselves at Book Up Summer book fairs. Those home libraries were made possible by you, Page Ahead’s amazing community of supporters! And those books have made a difference. “We are really financially struggling, and those books were such a wonderful treat!” a parent of a kindergartner at Arlington Elementary in Spokane told us. “We read two before bed last night, and he’s looking forward to reading two more for bed tonight. I can’t thank you enough!!!”
