As part of the Yale Day of Service, the Yale Club of Rhode Island is hosting a book drive during our Incoming Student Reception on May 14th at 4:30 at the home of Allison Spadone, Treasurer, YARI.
The mission of Books Are Wings is to put free books in the hands of children. We believe every child should experience the joy of reading. We envision every child in Rhode Island with access to quality reading experiences and books. Research suggests that growing up in a home with at least 20 books is associated with 3 additional years of schooling for children. Books Are Wings seeks to provide every child with regular access to books.
  • We accept children’s books (baby books through middle school).
  • We accept gently used and new books, but don’t accept books that are mildewed or damaged.
  • We are not able to accept the following types of books: adult/high school books, textbooks, reference books, religious books, cookbooks or workbooks.
