Book Drive with Reach Out and Read Colorado

An important factor in early learning and brain development is reading and bonding with a child. Reach Out and Read Colorado partners with healthcare providers across the state to encourage families with young children to read aloud together, building the groundwork for growth.

Partner healthcare clinics receive books, training, and support from Reach Out and Read Colorado. The providers across the state also have been trained to use books as an exam room diagnostic tool to discuss early literacy with parents and evaluate child development.

Girl Scouts of Colorado and Reach Out and Colorado are challenging Girl Scouts, troops, or service units to host book drives so we can get books into the hands of healthcare providers and then into the hands of families. So, clean out those bookshelves and donate to Reach Out and Read Colorado! The guidelines for a book drive are here. Gently used or new books appropriate for up to age 18 reading are accepted.

Reach Out and Read Colorado patches are available at the Girl Scout Shop.

The progressive Girl Scout Recruiter Patch Program is for Girl Scouts of all levels that are out in their community sharing with others what Girl Scouts is all about! There are four levels with required and optional activities to build your recruitment skills. Find more details on our blog.
