Annapolis, MD (PRWEB)
As the leading publisher of children's non fiction books, Usborne Books & More carries over 1800 Usborne and Kane Miller titles, including fiction, story books, activity books and more.
The Literacy for a Lifetime program matches any corporate or individual donation or grant that purchases books from Usborne Books with an additional 50% in free books. A Literacy for a Lifetime matching grant program is an excellent way to expand a library collection, build a leveled book room, or provide supplemental classroom materials.
The Literacy for a Lifetime matching grant program program is available for donations and grants as low as $200 and can be used as often as needed with no maximum on the amount that can be donated or matched. The organization receiving the books has full control over their selection, from an array of over 1800 titles.
Usborne Books & More Independent Consultant, Ken Kennedy, said, "The Literacy for a Lifetime program is a great way for schools of all sizes to promote and encourage reading. For example, when a school receives as little as $200 in donations to purchase Usborne Books, Usborne will donate an additional $100 in books to the school".
Usborne & Kane/Miller Books are internationally acclaimed as the finest entertaining and educational children's books in the marketplace today. Usborne & Kane/Miller offer over 1,800 fiction and non-fiction titles that inspire, engage and entertain your students through reading. As a host school, you can choose from a wide range of subjects covering science, history, hobbies, nature, the arts and more. There's no better gift for your school or organization than an Usborne "Reading Is A Gift" book fair event that promotes reading and pays you back in free books and/or cash.
