Share the joy of reading

Borders Music, Video and Book Stores is sponsoring a book donation. Throughout August at area Borders stores, they are accepting donation of books purchased in the store. The program, called "Ready to Lead in Literacy" will in turn donate the collected books to children in Puerto Rico.

This program is being conducted in affiliation with Nueva Vision, an affiliate of the Corporation for Public Broadcasting CPB. The "Ready to Lead in Literacy" is an annual effort by the CPB. CPB's objectives for the Ready To Lead in Literacy (RTLL) initiative are to increase the literacy of children in RTLL station communities; provide short-term funding to Ready To Learn stations to continue and grow their Ready To Learn activities; and support public television literacy leadership in select communities where PTV stations have made early childhood education -- especially literacy -- a core competency of their local services mission.
