Thanks to funding from the Stephen and Tabitha King Foundation and Alfred M. Senter Fund, BBBS was able to purchase and deliver 133 books for 28 Bigs and 43 Littles from Mockingbird Bookshop in Bath! The goals of this project are to offer matches a different type of match activity and connecting point during Covid-19, foster a love of books and personal libraries, and to encourage learning and conversations about various topics. As part of the project, Program Staff provided book discussion questions and follow-up activities for matches. We also had valuable opportunities for in-person match support check ins with many program participants!
“Thanks so much for the opportunity to partner with BBBS on this amazing endeavor!” – Terri Schurz, Mockingbird Bookshop owner
