Bulloch Schools Hosting Free Book Drop for Kids

The Bulloch County Literacy Council is hosting a free drive-through book drop for children ages birth to five-years-old on Saturday, March 6, from 10 a.m. to 12 noon, in the Statesboro High School parking lot. Look for the Bulloch County Schools Book Bus.

The event is to encourage families of young children to take time to read together to help improve pre-school literacy in Bulloch County and to help ensure children have access to books at home.

Families are invited to come pick up a bag of free books and early learning tips.
Children are born learners. From birth, they learn the foundations of reading. Families and caregivers can help build early learning skills in babies, toddlers, and pre-school and early elementary children by simply reading to them a few minutes each day.  Grab a good book and read today and make it fun by talking about the illustrations or having children find certain items in the pictures.
