Books on Break is a program of Book Harvest, a nonprofit organization that offers books to children in our community. The program stops summer reading loss by providing a consistent stream of books for children to read over the summer — when they are at risk of summer learning loss.
Books on Break takes place at Y.E. Smith Elementary School at the end of the school year. Through a partnership with EDCI, Durham Rotary, Book Harvest, and Y.E. Smith, students select 10 books to take home to read over the summer and keep forever.
