Through the National Book Foundation’s “Book Rich Environments” program, LMHA will partner with the Louisville Free Public Library, Friends of the Library, and local literacy partners to distribute over 14,000 brand-new books to underserved children ages 0 to 18.
Book Rich Environments is a tri-sector collaboration between nonprofit organizations, national government agencies, and corporate publishers that aims to infuse public housing communities across the country with a vibrant and accessible culture of books. The initiative connects families living in subsidized housing with reading-related resources, working to improve opportunities and outcomes for residents and their children.
If your organization is interested in distributing books to your clients, at an event, through a literacy program, or other means, please fill out the Book Request form below. Once form is received, a member of the LMHA team will contact you to arrange pickup of your books.
