Polk County Schools are closed due to the COVID-19 outbreak. This means students do not have access to reading material. Students may not be able to prioritize purchasing books and older students who read more often need a variety of reading material that’s appropriate for their age.
Children who start behind, usually stay behind. Sometimes, simply having access to a book is what is holding back a child from finding a love of learning.
The Lakeland Book Club is a collaborative network of nonprofits and volunteers with the shared goal of making sure every student who needs a book while school is closed for the COVID-19 outbreak, receives a book.
To register a child for the Book Club to receive one free book, simply fill out the form below.
Three organizations have teamed up to make the Book Club possible.
