Our innovative programs put books in the hands of children and put students on the path to success through a life-long love of reading.

Hear what some of our 1st grade Bookworm Bootcamp students have to say about being a reader!

Books on Break

The Books on Break program provides FREE pop-up book fairs, at targeted CMS elementary schools, before summer breaks. Students get the opportunity to select five books to read over the break, a drawstring bag to keep them in, and other fun items that encourage students to read every day throughout the summer!


Bookworm Bootcamp

Bookworm Bootcamp is geared toward 1st graders, at Title I and Charter schools in Charlotte’s most under-served neighborhoods.

  • Our “Professional Bookworms” visit title I classrooms, throughout the school year, building home libraries and teaching skills that make reading fun!
  • Bookworm Bootcamp was designed to build student’s home libraries, increase positive attitudes towards books & reading, and increase students’ nightly reading habits.
  • By the end of the program, each student has a home library of approximately 25 books, which will help remove them from the Charlotte area Book Desert.
