Collecting books for children. KRQE Cares program ‘Books for Kids’ is working with APS Title I Story Time in the Park.

This partnership has been able to provide books for children in low-income area parks. This started after KRQE Cares created ‘Shoes for Kids.’ With funds raised KRQE Cares was able to partner with APS Title I to stop by parks weekly and offer children some books to read.

Storytime will take place from June 6 to July 14 from 11:30 A.M to 1 P.M on Monday – Thursday. Mary Bretting-Miller APS Title I Resource Director, explains that their goal is to get books in the hands of children to keep their development going. Teachers also read to kids at these events.
