Reading is Fundamental
Dive into Reading with RIF in the Pecan Springs Library
Our final RIF event of the year is coming soon! Join me and our volunteers in the library as we prepare for the summer with a trip to the beach and, of course, FREE BOOKS!
*See schedule on back – please plan to arrive on time.
Reading Is Fundamental reading celebrations prepare and motivate children to read by giving out free books to those children who need them most.
Founded in 1966, RIF is the oldest and largest children’s and family nonprofit literacy organization in the United States. RIF’s highest priority is reaching children in need from birth to age 8. RIF in Austin began in 1974, and we have seen a large growth in the number of books distributed, increasing from 600 books in 1974 to over 60,000 books in 2010!
This program is vital for children who have no books in their homes, who have limited access to libraries and bookstores, and who, without RIF, would not experience the thrill of owning their own books.
All RIF programs combine three essential elements to foster children’s literacy: reading motivation, family and community involvement, and the excitement of choosing free books to keep.
Rotarians to sign up for a shift. If you are new, we will pair you with a Rotarian that has RIF experience.
