For the Love of Literacy "Pizza + Books" Giveaway 2020


Free books with no catch from the Loutit District Library and the Joyful Noise C-Fund!

***********************************************

Joyful Noise Christian Childcare’s C-Fund is ready to give away many brand new books to young readers at the sixth consecutive “Pizza Plus Books” event on Wednesday, March 18th from 4:30-6:30 p.m., in program rooms A and B at the Loutit District Library in Grand Haven!

No registration is necessary for the book fair, which is open to the public and will offer free books to underserved children from infancy up through eight years of age. Attendees can also enjoy a free pizza dinner from Domino's Pizza Grand Haven as well as access to other early childhood resources.

“I volunteered for the event because I find reading to be very important” said Oscar Sipe, a student of the Grand Haven High School National Honor Society who volunteered for last year's event. “In this day of technology, kids are much more interested in video and we cannot forget reading because it's just so much fun. It's good to get away from technology, so, in a way, supporting this it supports getting kids back to reading.”

A 2005 High Scope learning study found that “the greatest amount of brain growth occurs between birth and age five” and that nearly all of the brain’s core structure has been formed by the age of just 3 years old. A strong foundation for literacy is developed at this time, and access to age-appropriate books is an essential part of that groundwork and a cornerstone of the Joyful Noise C-Fund’s Love of Literacy program mission. The C-Fund seeks to connect young children and families with not only high-quality books, but also early childhood resources to support lifelong learning.
