Free books every month for children under age 5
#1
Many workers struggle financially after a work related injury. Dolly Parton has a free program for all children to receive a free book every month in the mail until age 5. There is no catch. She just wants children to read and be able to have their own books. You can sign up here.

I also want to write that with the internet many people forget the importance of a live book. No matter what your income is there are always free books in the library, and also many free programs for children to attend including story time. You can also rent videos from the library.

I began taking my daughter to the library when she was a toddler. When she was able to pick out her own books it was like getting free toys every week for her. I believe this was the reason why she was able to read and write by age 4.

While the library is a great resource every child should own some of their own books. It is important as their favorite books will be read over and over many times.

"Beyond Books: Public Libraries As Partners For Population Health


Public libraries are not usually included in discussions about improving population health. They are, however, well positioned to be partners in building a culture of health through programming that addresses the social determinants of health. The Healthy Library Initiative, a partnership between the University of Pennsylvania and the Free Library of Philadelphia (the public library system that serves the city), has undertaken such efforts in Philadelphia.

 In this article we report findings from an assessment of how ten highly subscribed programs address the social determinants of health, as well as results of interviews with community residents and library staff. Of the 5.8 million in-person Free Library visits in 2015, 500,000 included attendance at specialized programs that addressed multiple health determinants, such as housing and literacy. Library staff provided intensive support to vulnerable populations including homeless people, people with mental illness and substance use, recent immigrants, and children and families suffering from trauma. We found that public libraries are trusted institutions that have broad population reach and untapped potential to improve population health."
