Pennsylvania Kiwanis Club Literacy Meeting

Edinboro_Kiwanis.JPG

This week Velocity of Books visited the Edinboro Kiwanis and the Erie Kiwanis Clubs. We shared the history and success of Velocity of Books. More importantly:

-Edinboro Club has a program in which they give pocket dictionaries to third graders

- They read to elementary school students

- They learned that the Erie Youth Center is an organization which will take their remainder books after events

- They now know that they can access thousands of free books directly from Discover Books

 

Erie Kiwanis Club told us how there's a stationary bus full of free books, which people are welcome to come take. Erie Club also told us that Hooked On Books had supplied the community with more than 40,000 books in the previous year.  Velocity of Books is hoping to start supplying Hooked On Books with the books they need to serve their community.
