123Read2Me - Free Community Book Program

Postby Noel Tudball » Wed Aug 26, 2015 5:07 pm

Melinda is a past member of the SCC who found that running her Free Community Book Program - 123Read2Me - took up all of her time. (Reading this, you won't be surprised.)

Most books are distributed to local disadvantaged children and donations of "gently loved" children's books are always needed. Melinda has placed over 30 boxes of children's books throughout the community and over half need refilling every week (see photo below).

Donations can be dropped off at any Lions Op Shop (Mordialloc and Boorondara), Harcourt's Real Estate in Seaford, The Frankston Toy Library and Bendigo Bank branches in Aspendale Gardens, Carrum Downs & Frankston.

"Changing the Future One Book at a Time."
Melinda has now distributed 46,500+ children's books.

Melinda's books (and quite often, Melinda) are always available for swapping at the Seaford Community Committee stall at the monthly Seaford Farmers' Market http://www.seafordcc.org/forum/viewtopic.php?f=22&t=94 We are always very happy to promote the great work done by 123Read2Me at the Seaford Farmers Market every month. The kids check out the free books and we chat with the parents - and vice versa - a perfectly symbiotic relationship. :-) The stall also serves as a drop off point for books to be shared with other kids.
