Link to Libraries
Link to Libraries offers programs for homeless youth, newborns, kindergarteners and children up to age 15. Books are often donated in seven languages and are multicultural to service the needs of the target audience. Approximately 97 percent of the children are on or eligible for free or reduced lunch programs and approximately 60 percent of the children who receive books from Link to Libraries have never owned a new book prior to their gift. The Link to Libraries Business Book Link program includes nearly 60 businesses and private individuals, who are matched with schools and nonprofit organization. Inclusion in the program requires three-year funding for new books, and business owners and their teams must engage in a mutually agreeable endeavor with their sponsored school.
