Did you know you can use CARES Act funding to purchase books?

While digital instruction has become a necessity and education budgets are tight, many educators recognize the continued need to provide students with access to physical books, especially during the summer break. Did you know that schools and districts who receive CARES Act funding can spend these funds to purchase books for students to take home?

Booksource offers multiple literacy solutions and helpful services to make things easier for your school or district to use CARES funds to ensure access and choice for your readers during the summer. Find out more in our helpful blog.

How Booksource Helps You Support Summer Reading at Home

As part of any summer reading solution, it’s important to provide tools that help parents and guardians support their summer readers (especially if you are spending Title I funds). That’s why Booksource offers resources to help you encourage engagement and support summer reading at home.

Download and print the PDFs below to send home with students along with their summer reading books! Or you can direct parents and guardians to visit to download and print these resources themselves.
