donate to little readers

At Legacy, we believe kids should be healthy in body and mind, and our clinicians are treating both when our pediatric patients come in for well-child visits. In addition to the physical checkup, families leave with an age-appropriate free book and a “prescription to read.” We’re doing this through Legacy’s Little Readers.

Reading and talking with young children from birth builds new connections in the brain, stimulating early language learning and instilling their motivation to learn. Through Little Readers, Legacy has given away more than 235,000 free books to infants and youngsters during their well-child visits.

Legacy’s Little Readers is an entirely donor supported program, which means we rely on your generosity to keep this important initiative alive.
