Reach Out and Read programs frequently use donated books. These guidelines were developed out of respect for families and in keeping with the philosophy of Reach Out and Read – every child deserves good quality books.
Reach Out and Read RI accepts donations of new, developmentally and culturally appropriate books. Used books must be gently used (covers and pages intact, clean and readable). Hardcover picture books with brightly colored pictures and interesting stories are ideal. Reach Out and Read’s focus is on children between the ages of 6 months to 5 years, although books for older children are welcomed. Books about sensitive issues like divorce, abuse or death cannot be accepted. If included, they will be discarded.
