Barrow Book Partnership

The dual approach of Barrow Book Partnership (BBP) not only provides free books for young children to keep at home, but additionally provides local library information and advocacy to encourage families to sign up for the full range of free materials and services located at public libraries. Initially, we identified four target populations to serve; the children in the WIC program at the Barrow County Health Department; BCSS Child Find children; BCSS Pre-K Lottery registrants; and Barrow County’s foster children. Additionally, during the WIC Nutrition classes at the Barrow County Health Department and during BCSS Pre-K and Kindergarten registration days and Child Find in-take families are given the opportunity to sign up for a free PINES library card.
