The Literacy Empowerment Foundation, a 501(c)3 non-profit organization, has created science book collections that can be used to support all of your science curriculums, including National Environmental Education Week. These high quality, softcover books are available in kindergarten through second grade reading levels.
The Literacy Empowerment Foundation (LEF) has increased the size of the matching grants available to $20,000.00 per school. A school can now order $40,000.00 worth of books and pay only $20,000.00. (Any amount purchased from $100.00 to $20,000.00 will be matched.)
Here are the details: The Matching Book Grant Program offers Guided Reading and Independent Reading Collections. Guided Reading Collections consist of 6 copies each of 24 titles (144 books total). Independent Reading Collections consist of one copy each of 144 titles. With each set of Guided Reading and/or Independent Reading Collections purchased at the regular price, an additional set of your choice will be included free of charge.
Matching Book Grants allow your school to double its purchasing power. This is a limited time offer that requires no special screening or applications. Offer expires April 30th, 2009. For more information, click on this link: “Matching Book Grants”
