The Literacy Empowerment Foundation, a 501(c)3 non-profit organization, invites your school or other literacy project to apply for FREE books for Read Across America Day. During the past year, LEF has distributed over 3,000,000 books to schools all across the country for Read Across America Day and other literacy projects. The Reading Resource Project is an ongoing program that runs throughout the year. The program distributes books free of charge for literacy programs. Recipients merely pay shipping, handling, and administrative costs ($65 per set of 100 books). Reading Resource Project books come in sets of 100 books per set. There will not be more than four copies of the same book in any set. Reading levels are available for PreK through second grade.
