project was impacted by Hurricane Harvey. Several locations were lost as were books. We are working on restoring the locations, shelves and books.


Watch for updates to locations. We will stock the red book shelves with gently-used or new books appropriate for children in the community where families with children visit.  Books on the shelves have been donated by community members. Children are invited to take a free book home to read, learn, share or keep!


Access to books


Read to Shine’s goal is to give our children easy access to books. Research proves that access to books has a strong impact on a child’s success in and out of school. Having books in the home, being read to,  and seeing family members reading develops a love of reading and learning.


How does the program work?


Books are collected from individuals, businesses, groups and book drives, then sorted at Discovery Learning Center at 21 Griffith Drive, Rockport, TX 78382. Books are then distributed to Read to Shine shelf locations. *You can drop off gently used or new books at Discovery  Learning Center or you can make a monetary donation.

*At this time, we do not have available storage space to house additional books due to Hurricane Harvey.

We are working on locations, so watch for more details! Thank you for your support.
