Help us place more books in the hands of kids who need them most by gathering your friends for our virtual Trivia Night.
Test your knowledge in a variety of virtual trivia rounds - including literary themes, pop culture, multi-media and more! Whether you read a book a week or one per year, you probably know more than you think you do.
This trivia will be virtual over Zoom - specific details about the format and how you'll be able to hear questions and submit answers will be provided before the event.
Date: Friday, March 12, 2021
Time: Zoom opens at 6:30pm / Trivia begins at 7:00pm
We'll also be hosting an online auction that will end during the event - more details to come! If you'd like to donate an item, please email us at events@booksforSTLkids.org.
Books for STL Kids provides a critical resource to children in need. Access to books is essential to reading development, however, 61% of low-income families have no books for children in their homes. Over 80% of childcare centers serving low-income children lack age-appropriate books and other print materials. By providing children with books they can take home and keep, Books for STL Kids targets the only variable that correlates significantly with reading scores - the number of books in the home. In addition to reaching children directly through after school programs and childcare centers, we participate in several annual community events to distribute books to children in need as well as hosting our signature event, “The Largest Book Party in St. Louis.” Since 1998, Books for STL Kids has distributed more than 179,000 books to more than 90 existing local literacy programs.
