Residents at Boulder Housing Partners communities are participating in Book Rich Environment (BRE) events, where they receive bilingual books for children, learn about local resources that support education, nutrition, and healthy living, and enjoy story-times, delicious and nutritious food, dance performances, crafts, and more.
BHP is one of 37 housing authorities across the nation that are taking part in the Book Rich Environments (BRE) initiative, connecting communities with resources that help foster life-long, joyful relationships between readers and books. BRE is a collaboration between the National Book Foundation, U.S. Departments of Education (ED) and Housing and Urban Development (HUD), the Urban Libraries Council, and the National Center for Families Learning.
With support from the Boulder Public Library, BHP families will receive 3000 books to strengthen their home libraries. The final BRE event is scheduled for November, 2018. For more information, watch this Boulder Channel 8 story and view photos from the events on Facebook.
