Free standing libraries are a great way to promote literacy in your community and bring neighbors together.

Some people elect to have the books in their free standing libraries have a particular theme, such as children's books, cook books or mysteries.

Velocity of Books is encouraging summer reading.  Summer reading reduces summer slide - Summer Slide is the portion of the educational achievement gained through the school year and lost during the summer. Summer Slide is the number one cause of the reading achievement gap.

We gave away more than 600 science related books.

We met many exhibitors and had some new volunteers.

All of the books were taken before the end of the event.

In the future, we will be providing the books directly to Rockville Science Center and they will distribute the science related books for this event and the many events they distribute science books to throughout the year.  Relationships like this are key.   

Just yesterday, we facilitated the Rockville Science Center obtaining remaining science books from the AAUW book sale at Asbury Methodist Village.  

Our goal is to help community organizations which distribute books network to help themselves.
