Ready. Set. READ! is Edmonton Public Library's early literacy program that sends books to children all over Edmonton from the day they are born to the time they reach 5 years old.
Every month, each child in the program receives a new, age-appropriate book, waiting for them in their mailbox. These books are theirs to keep, and together we build up their very own personal library.
Our team was delighted and thrilled to donate our time to this important project to make literacy more readily available. Consider donating to EPL's Ready. Set. READ! program this Giving Tuesday.
