One thought on “Keeping Books Alive is on again

  1. I run a Free Children’s Book Program 123Read2Me ( so far I have distributed over 10,000 free Children’s books to kids who don’t have any. I have boxes of free books in 6 Maternal and Child centres, 2 Takeaway Shops, The Hippy Program(Frankston North) Hanover House (Homeless Shelter Dandenong) and Frankston Hospital. Would you be interested in promoting my program? I have just joined the Lions Club of Mordialloc/Mentone and they are going to help me expand my program. I am in discussions with Kingston Council to set up Recycle Bins for Children’s books. I am going to approach the Private Schools and Colleges to get them to be part of the program. As you are well aware reading aloud everyday is the most important thing a parent can do to set their child up for success at school. If you are interested I have a flyer that I can email you. Thanks for you time Melinda
