Children’s Books for Hope

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:

Allô! Chocolat
Avalon Square
Carroll University
Charles Z. Horwitz Planetarium
Girl Scouts (Brownies) of Waukesha
Sprizzo Gallery Caffe
Steaming Cup

Waukesha Community Art Project
Waukesha County Museum

Waukesha County Technical College

Westwood Health and Fitness

Thank you to all who donated! These books will certainly brighten the lives and minds of many children.
