Reaching New Heights: A Book Drive for the City Heights Weingart Library!

Did you Know?
  • Students can lose up to 25 percent of their reading level over the summer.
  • Students can lose up to three months of their education over the summer.
  • This loss is cumulative – so by the time a student enters high school or middle school, he or she could be years behind grade-level standards.

This can be prevented – by reading!  Reading just four books over the summer can prevent the summer slide, and can actually increase a student’s reading level. Will you help us collect New (or VERY gently used) books to help restock the City Heights Weingart Children’s library with fun and captivating educational materials for the children and Teens in City Heights??

Collecting NEW/Gently Used Children’s and Teen Books at the Kids Korps Offices or a participating Starbucks Location between NOW-July 27th
