How it works


BAW visits partner schools multiple times throughout the school year in this intensive citywide program. The program includes a story time read aloud and craft activity in every classroom. As a result every child in a partnership schools has the opportunity to receive up to 8 free books throughout the school year.

Why it works?

“The BAW events have enriched our students' reading experiences this year, and underscore a message that we are sending to our students about the importance of reading every day. We need as many books as we can get, and Books Are Wings has been a great support for our mission of increasing independent reading for our students. Thank you for all you have done for us this year!” – Robert F Bailey Elementary School

● “Thank you for being such a great community partner. You have provided our "Little" students with a wonderful variety of books over this past year and we are extremely grateful for your generosity! We look forward to working with you in the future!” Best Regards - Mike Gilmore – Principal, Agnes Little Elementary School

● “Thank you so much for always keep us in mind. BAW is always flexible (especially with the weather) make accommodations to make sure the kids have fun and get to read their favorite books. – Ella Risk Elementary
