Leads From Linda - Literacy Link

This week's lead is a donation suggestion.  Donating one or two books can make a big difference and you never know who might see your book.  Be sure to also check out Linda's sites: www.fivestarpublications.comwww.littlefivestar.comwww.fivestarpublications.com/sleuthswww.fivestarpublications.com/sixpointspresswww.fivestarpublications.com/legends, and  fivestarpublications.com/puppets


Literacy Link - Leamos is a volunteer tutoring program operating in a small, rural community in Southwest New Mexico. We assist the area by tutoring adults and children, reading to children in classrooms, distributing information on the importance of reading and providing resources to those who cannot afford to buy books and supplies for themselves.

We are requesting books that will be donated to attendees at  "Love Your Library Day," given to such groups as: WIC, Headstart, El Refugio, SWAK (Southwest Advocates for Kids) teen group homes and the Mobile Library that goes to more rural areas. Our 501 (c) 3# is: 85-0384008.

Please mail donations to:

  1. Thank you for any books you can send. I am amazed at how many people / children do not have books in their homes! Our goal is to get as many free books out into the community as possible. We do this through book giveaways at public events (our July 4th park celebration for example), library events, classroom giveaways and more. Our next big event is "Love Your Library" on February 6, 2010. Every person (adult or child) who enters the library can choose one free book to take home with them.

    Please send a book or 2 and help those who haven't yet discovered the love of reading!

    Thank you so much!
