I was recently contacted the Policy Council for Head Start for Washington County:
Currently each Head Start Center has a red book shelf that holds books that each student can take home to keep. Our shelves are running empty and we could really use donations of gently used books to fill our shelves. We are looking to partner with organizations in our communities to keep our book shelves
If you are interested in reaching out to them please let me know email@example.com
SUMMER READING AT NEW YORK LIBRARIES AND myON PARTNERSHIP INITIATIVE BRINGS THOUSANDS OF FREE DIGITAL BOOKS TO NEW YORK STUDENTS AND FAMILIES
This year as a component of Summer Reading at New York Libraries, the State Education Department and myON are partnering to bring thousands of FREE enhanced digital books to children and their families all around the state! The partnership runs all summer long through September 30, 2018
The New York State Library, myON, the 23 public library systems and the 41 school library systems began rolling out special 2018 Summer login information for use by students and families to local school districts and local public libraries in May. Public libraries or school districts that have not yet received login information are encouraged to contact their library system director.
The myON Digital Library provides young readers with more than 6,000 fiction and nonfiction e-books, covering a broad range of topics and themes. Unlimited 24/7 access is offered, online and offline. Flexible supports include professionally recorded audio, text highlighting, an embedded dictionary and a zoom feature to support independent reading. (These features enable families to read together, even if there isn’t a proficient adult reader in the household).
Resources and tips for parents and educators include on-demand videos, tip sheets, strategies and more to support meaningful family literacy experiences.
Readers can access the myON Digital Library and its special features online from any web-enabled device and offline using the free myON app. Families can download up to 20 books at a time for reading offline. myON logins may be used anytime and anywhere — at school, at the library, at home or on the road.
HOW STUDENTS AND FAMILIES WILL LOG IN:
Students who already have a myON login will continue to use that login to access the myON Digital Library and continue reading throughout the summer. myON is providing special Summer 2018 logins for all other children and families so all of New York’s children from birth and beyond can read anytime and anywhere through September 2018.
- Each school district, New York City Borough, and each of the 23 public library systems has a unique Summer 2018 login.
- Families with young children, home-schooled students, charter school students, nonpublic school students, caregivers and others will use their public library login.
- A state-level login is also available on the Summer Reading at New York Libraries site at http://www.summerreadingnys.org/ and the DayByDayNY (http://daybydayny.org/) and DayByDayNYSP in Spanish (http://daybydaynysp.org/) early literacy sites. Students who use Talking Book and Braille Library services may also participate in Summer Reading and access myON digital books at http://www.nysl.nysed.gov/tbbl/summer.htm
