We deliver books rain or shine
This is one of numerous examples of book collection and distribution.
Last Saturday, we served breakfast at this shelter on Gude Dr. in Rockville, with Kiwanis Club of Rockville.
It was our intention to bring the books to other organizations which could use them. We took a pause and realized that this is not a sustainable action. It would keep us in the loop. If we are going to help thousands of communities, the communities must be able to help themselves.Read more
Remainders from the Jewish Community Center of Northern Virginia book sale will make a profound impact on many of the lives of the neediest people.
Be part of the solution. If you know of a book sale or a significant number of books being purged, please let us know, so that we can get them back out the community.
Velocity of Books encourages book sales. Sales are an
opportunity to generate revenue, while providing books
of interest at an affordable cost.
Velocity of Books is collecting 10,000 books for Maryland elementary schools identified as schools with as few as thirty books in their school libraries. Together, we can make a difference.
Study shows that reducing TV time has a greater impact on increasing test scores, than increasing study time.
Help students by getting them involved in activities other than TV.
These boys read, bike, boat and skate.
Their mother worked hard to get them involved in activities before considering turning on the TV. As a result of their mother reading with them and working hard to provide books of interest, they don't have to watch TV to be entertained. They also don't have to study as hard as many other kids who watch a lot of TV.
