What is it?

Free books! Each month, children younger than 5 will receive a carefully selected book mailed directly to their homes.

Who qualifies?

Any child younger than 5 who lives within an eligible school district:  Battle Creek Public Schools, Harper Creek Community Schools, Lakeview School District, and Pennfield School District. 

Why should I sign up?

Reading is important! Reading with your child gives them the biggest boost toward a successful education, and sets them on the path to an interest in lifelong learning. Reading is an investment in their futures and the future of our community.

When will my child start receiving books?

Eight to 10 weeks after your registration has been received, books will begin arriving at your home.

Please remember to update your address if you move so your child does not miss any books.
