Since 2010, Polk County Reading Council (PCRC) members have been collecting books for the children and their caregivers.
PCRC is currently partnering with Polk County Schools' Library Media Services to maintain a stock of books available for Little Free Libraries in our communities.
PCRC has partnered with Polk County Schools' Books Bridge Mobile Classroom to help provide a free book monthly to enrolled participants.
In 2014-2015, PCRC partnered with Chick-Fil-A (North and South Lakeland) to provide stories during their Family Nights. Many members visited a Chick-Fil-A location to read a story with children of all ages.
PCRC joined Habitat for Humanity to supply books for a families receiving one of the Habitat houses. Book cases and bookends were purchased to organize the books, making them more appealing and accessible.
Thank you to all of our members who have participated by donating books, time, and talent. Our community service projects will continue throughout the 2017-2018 school year.
Please plan to bring a new or gently used book to donate at each PCRC event.
