Welcome

Fun With Books is a non-profit charitable organization (charitable number: 89643 0949 RR0001) that has been distributing books free of charge to youngsters in Leeds and Grenville counties in Ontario, Canada since December 1993. We have two main goals:

  1. to instill a love of reading and books in preschoolers so that they will have a better chance of success in their years of schooling and working ahead;
  2. to encourage children and their parents to spend some time every day reading and experiencing books together.

Six times a year, the children in our program receive a new book written, illustrated, and printed locally, which is theirs to keep. They continue receiving books every second month until they are 5 years old. Once they reach 5, they receive a special book, along with a graduation certificate and a letter to the parents encouraging them to keep reading with their children.

Since its inception, Fun with Books has distributed over 800,000 books and has seen close to 100,000 children graduate from the program. Presently approximately 1,450 children are registered.

Over 100 volunteers work to make Fun with Books a successful program, and there is no paid staff. Donations from foundations and other organizations, individual donations, paid sponsorships for our books, and fundraising activities provide the bulk of the funding for this preschool program..
