Why New Books?

“I want to extend my appreciation to Page Ahead for the beautiful books we received at Greenwood Elementary. I have never seen a collection of donated books that are as beautiful as these. Typically, donated or grant-funded books are paperback castoffs, often outdated, although the gift is always well intended. The books from Page Ahead are in beautiful, new condition, and each is timely and of interest to students. Our kids are going to be thrilled with their new books!”

Ruthanne Rankin, Librarian

Our Programs
  • Parents
    "Ashley loves to read. I gave her a book that she can be challenged by with puzzles and brain teasers. She is having fun while she reads. Having fun and loving to read are the keys to success."
    – Mary S.
  • Children
    "The book is magnificent, awesome, happy, and interesting. It helps me learn, and it helps me be smart."
    – Fuamai, Van Asselt Elementary, Seattle
  • Teachers
    "The economy in our area rarely allows parents to provide more than the necessities for their children. And unfortunately, books are considered luxury items."
