Literacy Champion: Book Donation Manger
Open Door Family Medical Centers participates in a national reading program, Reach Out and Read. The mission is to better prepare preschool children living in poverty to enter kindergarten by getting them excited about reading and educating their parent about the importance of reading aloud to their child.
Book donation manager. We receive many book donations and need one or two people to:
- Sort the books when they come in
- Box by books type such as board books for toddlers, easy picture books, picture books, Step-into-Reading, easy chapter books & older chapter books.
- Occasionally pick up books drives from our health centers or other locations in Westchester.
The book storage is located at Ossining Open Door. The other health centers are located in Sleepy Hollow, Port Chester, Mt. Kisco and Brewster. Books for our Brewster location can be delivered there or left at our Port Chester site for a staff member to bring.

- The book storage is in the basement, so would not be great for someone with many allergies.
