Hi there- Annie Lewis of Multnomah County Library gave me this information as a way to reach out to librarians in other Oregon counties. I would love it if this message could be posted.


Recently, Office of Child Care began partnering with Multnomah County Library's Every Child Initiative to start bringing free books out on visits to Regulated Subsidy home child cares. Children qualify for this type of child care because their families fall below a certain income bracket that qualifies them for subsidized child care costs. Workers at Office of Child Care noticed that these homes frequently have very few books for children. We are thrilled to be partnering with Every Child to bring out a few books per visit to the children we serve! It is not only a great way to promote literacy in underserved populations, but also a nice opportunity to plug other resources and events offered by local libraries.

We would love to expand this concept in other counties. If you are interested, please contact me at angela.stinson at ode.state.or.us<mailto:angela.stinson at ode.state.or.us>. If there are other ways you think your library and the Office of Child Care could partner together, we would love to hear about this as well!

Thank you for all you do!
