Hooked on Books for Kids
Hooked on Books for Kids is an all-volunteer non-profit devoted to literacy, life-long learning, and the love of reading. It promotes these goals by giving brand new, high quality books to underprivileged children and youth aged birth to 18 living in Erie County, by reading aloud to children at Edison and Lincoln Schools in grades K through 5, and by encouraging parents and other care givers to read daily to their children.
Programs and Services
Hooked on Books for Kids distributes books through schools, food banks, social service groups, volunteer agencies and others that work with underprivileged children and/or youth.
Our Books for Birthdays program offers three brand new books each year to parents or other care givers through our outlet at St. John's Lutheran Church. It is open Saturdays from 11:00-1:00.
Our read-aloud program sends volunteers monthly to Edison and Lincoln Schools where adults read to pupils in grades K through 5 and give each child in those grades a new book each month.
