Promote reading, encourage learning, and expand minds.
The mission of Books for Budding Brains is to collect and distribute new or gently-used books to Siouxland children in need. We want, however, to deliver more than just a book: we want to offer a message of hope. We want to show our children that the capacity of their minds is not limited by economic situation and that sometimes, in fact, the best way out of a bad economic situation is to develop their brains through reading.
Over the past 11 years, we have collected and distributed more than 40,000 books at various events and activities in and around Siouxland. Thank you to those who donated, accepted donations, and helped sort all those books.
