For a perfect birthday or holiday gift, give a book to honor a friend or relative! You make a donation to the Nesmith Library and we purchase a book or other item that will enhance our children's room collection. The honoree can be the first to borrow the item. Imagine how thrilling it is for a child to borrow a book that has a bookplate with his or her name in it!
If you wish to spread the love of reading, your monetary gift to any of these organizations will provide a child or community with books or literacy skills:
Children's Literacy Foundation. "Our mission is to inspire a love of reading and writing among low-income, at-risk, and rural children up to age 12 throughout New Hampshire and Vermont."
Believe in Books Literacy Foundation. "Supporting literacy iniatives in Northern New England."
First Book. "Access to new books for children in need."
Reach Out and Read. "Incorporating books into pediatric care and encouraging families to read aloud together."
World Literacy Foundation. "We envision a world in which every one of us can read and write."
Many more organizations exist to help children develop a love for reading, please consider giving.
