Young Children Newsletter – November 2022

Every September the Scarborough Kiwanis Club gives a book to every Kindergarten, First and Second Grade student in our town. That’s about 700 students costing $700. The books are new, colorful and age level appropriate. We purchase the books from Scholastic through the Literary Partnership Program with Kiwanis International. Do you know this program exists and is available to all Kiwanians?

By being a Kiwanian, you are already part of the Scholastic Literacy Partner family and can take advantage of exclusive offers like:

  • Savings of up to 72% off list prices
  • Free 10-book bonus collection for every $150 spent
  • Free shipping and handling
  • An all-new selection of $1 books
  • Access to over 9,000 titles via the store:

With Scholastic as your partner, your club can build reading-friendly environments for the community, schools and the children you serve. Kiwanians have special access to high-quality, high-interest, age-appropriate books at the lowest prices available, helping to stretch your service dollars even further which benefits more children.

Our Club has ordered books for about 5 years now and has always been impressed with the books. $1 per book is a bargain and a blessing to each child.
