Our goal is to create free personal libraries for all children born in the City of Roanoke, because books can't be luxury.
Educators, Doctors, Lawyers and Moms - we are a passionate group of local women who know we can change our community by sharing books, and the importance of reading with our neighbors.
Every new parent wants to be a great Dad or Mom - but does that really include reading out loud to a newborn? That is the question that started Turn the Page in 2013. And the answer is Yes!
We now give out thousands of new books to local children every year, from birth, to doctors appointments, to school, and in between.
Our mission is to bridge the achievement gap in Roanoke by turning every child into a reader.
Yup - every one!
