The Outreach for Underserved Children program, part of Read to Me, provides resources to enhance outreach visits, reaching those children who cannot get to their local library and increasing the number of families with access to books in their homes during the school year. (We offer a similar program during the summer as part of the Bright Futures Program. If your outreach event occurs during the months of June, July or August, please apply to the Bright Futures: Outreach for Underserved Children program.)
School libraries may now apply independently to this program, on a case-by-case basis, if you do not have a public library nearby or if your public library cannot serve your school through their outreach efforts. Schools, please contact a Read to Me staff member to discuss your outreach effort and, if approved, a seperate school application link will be sent to you for completion.

This program is brought to you by the Idaho Commission for Libraries and was made possible, in part, by the Institute of Museum and Library Services.
