Thank you for your interest in supporting Roanoke’s children. Support for improving grade-level reading outcomes exists in many forms, including by volunteering, making a donation of funds or books, or being a partner!
We are always happy to accept donated children’s books! We just ask that they be in new or very gently used condition, and appropriate for 3rd grade and below.
For more information on how to donate books, please contact us at (540) 853-5842. Thank you!
MAKE A DONATION
We appreciate your generosity. Donations allow us to purchase more high-quality books for Roanoke kids.
If you are interested in making a donation to support Star City Reads, you can do so here. All donations to Star City Reads go through the Roanoke Public Library Foundation, which is our fiscal agent.
Thank you for your support!
Our volunteers make our work possible! We currently have 35 volunteer Star City readers reading and giving books to children at every 4 year old preschool class at the Roanoke City Public Schools. That’s a total of 600 kids every month.
The 2019-2020 school year program has begun, and all volunteer slots are full. Please check back with us next summer to learn more.
