Each year, Raising Readers is excited to offer Maine's public libraries a copy of the program's 5 year book. These custom editions include a special letter to 5-year-olds from the Maine author as well as book related activities. These special books aren't available outside of the Raising Readers program.
*As much as we would love to offer these books to each and every library in Maine, this offering is currently just for Maine Public Libraries.

We have some catching up to do, so there are two title offerings this year. If you'd like one or both please complete the form below.

"...there's really no such thing as neutrality. But there is the side of truth, and there's the side of valuing the widespread availability of information. In making decisions about restricting information and banning books, a library can state, 'We are on the side of truth. We're on the side of making as many books available as possible.' If there's any institution that should declare that-that recognizes that we need public institutions that arm us with information and facts and context and constructive dialogue and debate-it's a library." -Ibram X.
