Though our sites receive book shipments directly to their locations, they also greatly appreciate the times when they can visit our larger storage space and bring books back to their site, thanks to larger donations from authors and publishers.
On a very rainy Tuesday, November 29th, 42 sites were able to receive a total of 14,778 books from the Reach Out and Read Storage Space in Greenpoint, Brooklyn.
One Practice Manager who drove over 1 hour from her site in Long Island wrote, “For some of our patients, your books are the only ones that they own and they treasure them when we give them out.
“Many of our patients and their parents share that they are learning with the help of the reading material that you provide. It gives the staff great pleasure to present the books to the patients and they are often the best distraction for our little ones.”
We are grateful to author Dave Reisman and The Elkes Foundation for donating copies of Cows Can’t Jump, Cows Can’t Quack, and his new book, Cows Can’t Spin Silk.
In addition, we received 5,000 copies of Galactic Hot Dogs 1: Cosmoe’s Wiener Getaway by Max Brallier from Simon & Schuster.
Thank you to all who participated!
