Putting books in the hands and homes of children in need.
Again this year, Waukesha Reads partnered with Volunteers of Lake Country to collect new and gently used children’s books for the Volunteers of Lake Country Free Children’s Library located at Waukesha’s Hope Center. Over 1,000 books are given away each month to children in need in our community.
Over 1,700 books were collected this year for the Children’s Books for Hope project. A special thanks goes to the following organizations and business that collected books:
Charles Z. Horwitz Planetarium
Girl Scouts (Brownies) of Waukesha
Sprizzo Gallery Caffe
Waukesha Community Art Project
Waukesha County Museum
Waukesha County Technical College
Westwood Health and Fitness
