READING PROMOTION PARTNERS

A | B-C | D-K | L-Q | R-Z

The Center for the Book's reading promotion partners network began in 1987. Now numbering more than 90, the partners are mostly national or international organizations that promote books, reading, literacy or libraries and are interested in cosponsoring promotion projects with the Center for the Book. They are invited to use and help promote the Center for the Book's current national reading promotion theme, Telling America's Stories, or past themes such as Books Make a Difference,or Explore New Worlds, READ!, and to use or adopt the Center's logo, Books Give Us Wings. Partners are expected to make every effort to participate in the annual partner's idea exchange which is held at the Library of Congress every spring. They are also asked to explore partnerships at the local level between their regional, state, or local chapters and the Center for the Book's affiliates in 50 states and the District of Columbia.

Advantages to partners include opportunities to meet representatives of other like-minded organizations, a connection with the Library of Congress that could be useful in publicity or fundraising, and a good contact point (the Center for the Book) within the Library of Congress. Partners also may be invited to distribute literature about their organization and activities at the National Book Festival, which is hosted by First Lady Laura Bush and sponsored by the Library of Congress in October.

Partnerships are formalized through an exchange of letters between John Y. Cole, director of the Center for the Book, and the partnership organization. The status of the partnership is reviewed every three years by the Center for the Book. If the status appears to be inactive, after discussion with the partnership organization, the affiliation may be dropped.
