2021 Raising Readers Annual Report
On behalf of all of us at Raising Readers, we are excited to share the 2021 annual report with you. With tremendous help from healthcare providers at hospitals, midwiferies, and primary care practices across the state, we gave 150,000 books to nearly 63,000 Maine children in 2021. Since 2000, Raising Readers has reached more than 300,000 children with more than 3.3 million books—WOW!
As many of our days remain unpredictable because of the pandemic, Raising Readers remains a constant in the lives of healthcare providers, families, and children. We are grateful to the Libra Foundation for its 21 years of support and for your continued championing of making books and reading part of growing up in Maine. We look forward to partnering for many more years.
