The Book Buddies Bulletin

August 2021

A program of the SAISD Foundation

Book Buddies provides free books for SAISD students in grades PK-8, allowing these students to start and grow their own home libraries. Share your love of reading by helping kids in SAISD. With the help of volunteers and donors like you, Book Buddies delivers thousands of books to campuses across San Antonio. In 2020-2021, we delivered 50,000 books to 15,000 children during the school year and another 25,000 during the summer. Click here to volunteer.

Thank you SAISD Librarians!!

Over 30 SAISD Librarians came over and helped us sort and box books for our Summer Jumpstart Rolling into Reading program!

Summer Rolling into Reading Sponsored by Whataburger

We delivered about 25,000 books to SAISD children participating in the Summer Jumpstart Program across 51 campuses this summer. Thank you to Whataburger for your sponsorship and thank you to all of the volunteers who helped us get books ready. This would not have been possible without the amazing SAISD Transportation team.
