Kids who read stretch their imaginations and vocabularies and are equipped to do better in school. But while middle-class homes may have expansive bookshelves, a majority of low-income families don’t have any children’s books.
That’s a problem the nonprofit Cleveland Kids’ Book Bank aims to address. In the two years it’s been in operation, it’s distributed one million books to families and kids — a milestone it reached on January 18.
Starting in March 2016, inspired by the Little Free Library Movement, co-founders Judy Payne and Judi Kovach now process tens of thousands of kids’ books through its space in MidTown.
To help support its work and to celebrate its two years of work, the Cleveland Kids’ Book Bank is hosting a benefit/anniversary party at Vosh in Lakewood. There will be drinks, food, birthday cake and raffle prizes. Tickets are $35 in advance, $40 at the door. It’s 21 and over only.
They’re also looking for volunteers. Go to the website to find out more.
