Free books offered to kids (01/16/2005)
Collaborating again, Southern Minnesota Initiative Foundation and Picture Window Books are partnering for a third offering of free books to the children of southern Minnesota. Previous BookStart events generated well over 6,000 books to area organizations for distribution to local children, promoting a life-long love for reading and literature. The main goal of this program is ensuring that every child has a book of his or her own at home to read or be read to by family members.

"Good books open up new horizons for exploration, education, and personal development," says Trixie Ann Golberg, The Foundation's President, "and this upcoming BookStart offer is another opportunity for local interests and organizations to bring high quality, age appropriate books to more children in southern Minnesota." BookStart will select projects based on the number of children receiving books; parent and adult participation; promotion of childhood learning and literacy; and collaboration with other organizations. Eligible projects must be located within The Foundation's 20-county area.

For an application, write to Southern Minnesota Initiative Foundation at PO Box 695, Owatonna, MN 55060, or log on to: www.smifoundation.org/application.pdf. For more information, call Janet Lundstrom at 507.455.3215, e-mail her at mailto:janetl@smifoundation.org or visit www.smifoundation.org. Applications are due March 1, 2005, and approved projects will be notified in April of 2005.
