Let’s Read: Beat the Heat

By June 17, 2024June 20th, 2024General, What's Happening

On a hot summer day, whether at the beach or in a cozy La-Z-Boy® recliner, nothing beats escaping into the pages of a great book! For the kids, all the required reading of school assignments is completed and now is the time to read for fun! 

But what if you don’t have access to fun adventures, silly stories, or National Geographic animal books?  What if your parents work two jobs and there’s no time left for a trip to the library?  What if you don’t have transportation to a public library?

School is out and so is your access to books.

Our solution: books at home!

Thanks to CBS Texas and La-Z-Boy, a lot more children across DFW are going to have the opportunity to have books at home! Over 3,500 books were donated at La-Z-Boy® stores in May, including a 500 book donation from Nickelodeon.  These donations will be used at Book Drive for Kids summer book giveaways and free book fairs. We are excited about finding new homes for these great books.

We are so grateful to La-Z-Boy® and CBS Texas for this opportunity! CBS Texas reporters Nicole Baker and Lauren Crawford are two of the kindest and easiest people to talk to. Thank you so much for giving us the opportunity to advocate for the importance of books and families reading together.
