** READING PARTNERS HOLIDAY BOOK DRIVE! **

Together we’re building the future of the Bay Area

Support young readers this holiday season by purchasing and donating a new, age-appropriate book from Alexander Book Company. All donations will go to
Reading Partners, a local non-profit organization that provides one-on-one literacy tutoring to K-4th grade students reading behind grade level.

The COVID-19 pandemic has exacerbated existing inequities in historically disadvantaged communities. Although students have returned to the classroom, the need for literacy support is greater than before. With your help, we will slow that progress loss by giving students books that not only open their imagination, but also that provide a key tool for practicing the skills they learn in the classroom. We know that many of our students and their families are facing extreme hardship.
right now and that the future for everyone seems distant. That is why we're hosting a book drive partnership with Reading Partners and Alexander Book Company.

Will you join us in trying to collect 500 books for students?

Books can be bought in-store from Alexander Book Company, or purchased on our website and we will have them sent directly to Reading Partners:
