Naples Delivers over 120 Bundles!!
Budding Readers - Naples

The Naples Library has partnered with Budding Readers to bring the Budding Readers Program to the Naples community.
Watch for announcements in your school newsletter, the library, and fliers around town. To date, more than 120 "bundles of books" have been delivered to Naples families!

Babies, up to 24 months of age in the Naples School District can receive a free "bundle of books" along with our Parent Guide, which contains tips for reading to babies and young children. In addition, a gift of age appropriate books is provided for siblings through age 7.

Families who have received a bundle of books for their babies are also sent a coupon twice a year (up to age 5).
They can bring the coupon to the Naples Library and select a new free book.

Budding Readers also provides a new book for each entering UPK and Kindergarten student in the Naples district.

The Naples Budding Readers Program is coordinated by Judy Kaminski, retired kindergarten teacher from Naples.
