A Book For Every Child (R) is a year-round project established in 1992, with an annual campaign during November and December. The goal is to give books to children who otherwise would not own a book. A Book For Every Child (R) promotes awareness of the importance of books in a child's life, supports family literacy and has a direct and lasting impact on children in our community.
