Early Childhood Book Distribution Programs

What Works

Having books in the home has been proven to improve a child’s reading performance, cause children to read more and for longer lengths of time, and produce improved attitudes toward reading and learning among children. Additionally, children who live in print-rich environments and who are read to during the first years of life are much more likely to be reading proficient when they enter school. Moore County's local book distribution projects and book drives help ensure more young children in our community have access to engaging, age-appropriate books at home and give parents the supports and resources they need to succeed in launching their children as lifelong readers.
