The Children's Book Room

YouthHope offers The Children’s Book Room as a way to promote literacy and youth development!

Children may choose books to keep at home! This helps build a book selection at home which encourages reading for enjoyment outside of school.

There is no limit to the number of times a child may visit the Children’s Book Room!

All books have been donated by individuals, stores, libraries, and schools.
