Join the Reach Out and Read Movement
Our efforts are made possible by the dedication and generosity of our supporters and volunteers.
Join us and help make reading a priority for our families across Colorado—whether by donating to the organization, donating your gently-used books, creating a #ReadTogether video, or starting a program at your own clinical practice.
By giving to Reach Out and Read Colorado, you give children a better chance for a brighter tomorrow.
Gently Used Books
**We are currenting NOT ACCEPTING any book donations for the next two months, as we are packing and moving office spaces.**
If you would like to donate books in the meantime, please consider giving to our friends at BookGive. Learn more about what books they accept and how and where to donate here: bookgivedenver.org/give-books.
If you have questions, please email [email protected].
Gently used books are placed in waiting areas and exam rooms at Reach Out and Read Colorado clinics to create literacy-rich environments, and help build home libraries for patients and siblings of all ages. We are happy to accept new and gently-used children’s books abiding by the following guidelines:
- Be gently used (covers and pages intact, clean and unmarked pages)
- Age range: infants up to and including young adults
- No textbooks
- No used coloring or activity books
If you would like to donate children’s books in the Denver-area, please drop them off at our office at 3705 Martin Luther King Blvd in Denver, CO (on the Clayton Early Learning Campus).
Social Impact Partner
Social Impact Partners are organizations and corporations who commit to support a specific clinic (or multiple clinics) for a minimum of one year, making a profound impact in preparing Colorado’s youngest children for long-term success. An Impact Partnership supports all site operations, materials, and training for the entire year, as well as access to Reach Out and Read Colorado staff as they help facilitate events for your employees. Your employees will have the opportunity to attend educational sessions, volunteer, host a book drive, or interact with local families, and your brand will increase its exposure and improve its social responsibility within your community.
