Reading Program

Reading Changes Lives is an outreach program designed to motivate kids to pursue reading. We have discovered that in many cases the books handed out by community activists who donate books to our libraries are the first books the child has owned. Our program has distributed books to over 7,000 children. Children benefit from Reading Changing Lives at the Hamtramck Center and Delray Neighborhood House. Children are able to choose from a wide selection of books that interest them at our two in-house libraries and read in a relaxed, quiet environment complete with bean bag chairs and cozy fire place.
