Our Mission...

NorwalkReads! seeks to promote the opportunity and encouragement to read though the distribution of free books and supporting literacy programs to all children in Norwalk with a focus on those at risk.

 

Our Activities...

Each year NorwalkReads! holds various city-wide free Book Distributions -- The East Norwalk Library, the Norwalk Public Library (including the South Norwalk Branch Library), the Rowayton Library, the Norwalk Housing Authority and other venues such as the Stepping Stones Museum.

Special individual venue Book Distributions are held periodically.

The free Book Distributions enable children to receive 2 new and 2 slightly-used book from thousands of titles which are either purchased by NorwalkReads! or have been contributed by various sources.

The children are encouraged to read the books they choose through various incentives provided at each distribution.

Dates, times, and places of the free Book Distributions are widely publicized through local media, school flyers, emails, this website, and posters placed within the weeks preceding the events.
