The 2017 Raising Readers Annual Report

We are pleased to share the 2017 Raising Readers Annual Report. With help from 1,200 healthcare providers at nearly 350 participating sites, the program delivered 162,000 high-quality, developmentally appropriate books to 68,000 Maine babies and children in 2017.

Since 2000, Raising Readers has been privately funded in its entirety by the Libra Foundation, an extraordinary gift! Please join us in saluting the Foundation’s commitment to Maine’s future for all these years.

We would also like to take this opportunity to thank all of you—parents, grandparents,  early literacy advocates, librarians, publishing partners, early childhood educators, healthcare providers, literacy organizations, and community volunteers – for making Maine communities happier and healthier by reading to and engaging with our youngest citizens.

Happy reading!
