Linda Irwin, Secretary of Book Ahead, shared with Elmbrook Rotary the mission and vision of this non-profit organization. The goal is to provide underserved children ages 0-5, in Waukesha and Milwaukee counties, with a book every month of the year, increasing early literacy and positive parent/child interactions. Reaching 3,500 kids with 10,500 books equates to “3 books in the hands of our littlest readers”.
Book Ahead has become Community partners with:
  • HeadStart MPS
  • HeadStart Waukesha County
  • WIC Waukesha County
  • Heavenly Babies
Through these partnerships a vision of future success can be attained “by increasing early literacy each child has a jump start on continued school success.”
Thank you, Linda, for sharing how Book Ahead has positively impacted young children by your volunteer organization. For more information and how to donate to this great cause, visit
