Read, Baby Read!
Wednesday, April 24, 2013 • Posted April 24, 2013

Want to support the library but don’t have the time to volunteer? Well, there is another way to give your support—donate money to buy board books for our new outreach program, Read, Baby, Read. The Library is giving these books to low-income families who have children under the age of three. Research shows that reading to babies and toddlers greatly increases their language development and increases their chances of success when they begin school.

So far, anonymous donors have given money to buy the board books for March and April. Our goal is to distribute at least twenty books each month. We are sending books to Head Start, the Frontera Clinic, and the Mason Food Bank for distribution. We are trying to pick books priced at $8.00 or less.

If you want to help, you may send a check to:

Mason Co. M. Beven Eckert Memorial Library

P. O. Box 1785

Mason, TX 76856

Or, you may come in person to the library. Be sure to indicate that your donation is for the Read, Baby, Read project.
