Making books and reading part of growing up in Maine

Children who are introduced to reading at an early age tend to excel at school and are quicker to develop critical learning skills. Raising Readers partners with every hospital, midwife, and primary care provider in Maine to give a library of high-quality books to every child in Maine, starting at birth through age 5.

What we do

Provide books to young Mainers

We give free, high-quality books to every child in Maine, starting at their birth and at each well-child visit through age five. To date, we’ve given away over 3 million books.

Make expert recommendations

Our advisory committee researches and chooses the best books for 13 various age groups, as well as subject specific titles that address adoption, toilet training, nutrition and more.

Share literacy resources

We help parents and caregivers identify and access high-quality resources — including organizations, programs, activities and apps — that support early literacy.

“Raising Readers represents a powerful, statewide action expressly designed to support and empower families in building their children’s literacy. I can think of few things more important than that for the future of our state.”

—Susan Bennett-Armistead Ph.D., Raising Readers Early Literacy Advisor

Welcome to Our New Website!

We’ve redesigned our website to better support you and your little one on your literacy journey. Here, you can explore all the books we’ve selected over the years and the reasons we chose them. Learn about what’s happening in your little one’s brain and body in the early years and how that may influence how your child interacts with books. Explore titles further with book activities that will make your family’s story time experience even better. We’ll be posting blog posts regularly, too, with emergent literacy tips, tricks, and recommendations, so we hope you’ll visit often.

Raising Readers is a statewide program funded by the Libra Foundation, led and administered by MaineHealth in collaboration with Northern Light Health with support from The Barbara Bush Children’s Hospital.
