Since 2010, Polk County Reading Council (PCRC) members have been collecting books for the children and their caregivers.
PCRC is currently working to keep Little Free Libraries in our Polk County communities stocked. Our members deliver new and gently used books to Little Free Libraries all over Polk County. You can check out the latest news on our Facebook page.
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.
