This collection is created to service Neighborhood Centers Inc. Klein Early Head Start/ Head Start. This nonprofit organization program services children in under served communities. The focus of this special collection will be on the Head Start Program that has a 4 year old program (Pre-k).

The Pre-K program promotes school readiness and success for students entering elementary. Currently, this program does not have a librarian. Teachers let parents "check-out" books upon request. The budget of $1,000 will cover 30 books, 1 Nook, 1wifi hotspots (with two school year services), and book bags. These items will be checked out by parents through free app called BookSource (free online library services). Parents who don't have internet will take home a wifi modem. The purpose of this project is to promotes reading with parents and literacy. Therefore, parents will read the article by Reading Rockets and demonstrate one of the strategies mentioned. The student will present the book and strategy to the class. In addition the books chosen are also books that lend themselves to perseverance (The Dot), self esteem ( I Like Myself), empathy ( Knuffle Bunny), friendships/ bullying ( Don't Let the Pigeons Drive the Bus), pleasure reading (Pete the Cat).
