Erica Ortiz, from JCS furnishings in photo. Thank you JCS Furniture for donated bookshelves for our upcoming 6th Kids' Reading Room! They also donated 6 bookshelves for our 5th reading room last year! We are so grateful!
A BIG thank you to Chapelwood! We received a grant for furnishings and snacks for our students!
Boxes of books arrived in the mail beginning Christmas Eve Day! Best Christmas present ever!
Just in time to wrap for our Christmas/Holiday parties! Northbrook High School students helped us wrap 75 sets of books and we were able to give 250 to our community center Kids' Reading Room location for our students there.
Charlotte Walstead, Girl Scout troop 18127, worked to earn her Silver Award by helping The Kids Reading Room! She showed up with a load of snacks, waters, new polka dotted rugs, sorted books in tubs, and a Costco gift card for more future snacks for our kiddos! Thank you Charlotte!
We're thrilled to accept a $3800 Impact Grant from The Pollination Project and The Fox Family! What a difference it will make in our upcoming 5th reading room!
