United Way


(formally known as Book of the Month Club)

Kids succeed in school when they have books at home and parents who read with them.

Help build home libraries for children in need.

Each month, we distribute books to more than 700 young children along with other important resources to help their families thrive.

We love being part of your family's reading journey and providing books to increase your Home Libraries. Currently, Book of the Month enrollment is closed due to reaching maximum program capacity. Enrollment will open again on May 1st, 2023.
