Read Books – Earn Prizes
*Call Rita @ 717-845-8719 for more information!

Reading Week is January 13-19, 2020

BUCK A BOOK ® (BAB) Reading Program is a motivational reading program held in York County Schools that rewards students for reading and raising money to help others!

NEW! – Buck A Book is Online @ http://www.buckabook-yclc.orgYou may participate with your printed envelope, online or both.  The site opens January 1, 2020.

BAB provides quality prizes to motivate students to read books and raise funds for the York County Literacy Council. Prizes have varied, but usually the prizes are tickets to a family activity such as York City Ice Arena, York Revolution, AvalancheXpress, Roundtop Mountain Adventure, McDonalds, and Hersheypark. These are just a few of the favorites. All promotional materials are provided to schools as well as incentives for faculty and the opportunity to earn books for schools.

YCLC understands that inspiring children to love reading will improve their opportunities for a better education and eventually a satisfying career. BAB becomes a family event for many of the students as brothers and sisters can participate and parents are proud to see their children become excited about reading. More recently, YCLC provides assemblies for the schools, and over the years YCLC has provided adult student ambassadors to speak to the school children about the importance of reading.  

The dollars raised through the BUCK A BOOK® reading program support YCLC.  YCLC thanks students, teachers and parents across York County for their participation and support!
