In late 2018 we increased the age of eligibility for babies to receive bundles of books. In all of our communities, babies 36 months of age and under can now receive a free bundle of books. Prior to this, the cut-off age for eligibility was 24 months. More books for more babies!
We have a new partnership program, Family Promise – Ontario County. Family Promise is a nationwide program serving homeless families, working to get them gainfully employed and into their own housing. This is the first year that the program has operated in Ontario County. Budding Readers will provide a “bundle of books” for each child, ages birth to 11, once the family is settled into their new home. We are happy to be supporting their work and wish them great success!
