3Rs for 3BR is the title of the signature Kiwanis Club of Baton Rouge Service Project.

 "Reinforcing the Rewards of Reading: Building a Better Baton Rouge."   

3Rs for 3BR provides new and used children's books to public locations throughout Baton Rouge where adults and their young children from 0-5 years of age are likely to spend time. Sites currently include Health Clinics and Pre-K programs, for example. At these sites, in bookshelves donated by 3Rs for 3BR, Kiwanis Volunteers place books that can be selected and read to young children. Once the adult caregiver or parent is finished reading one of the books to the child, the book is then signed over to the child for her or his personal library at home.  


This is the kind of smile we get when a young child finds out they get to keep the book!

Why is it important for children to have books in their homes? The number of books in the home is one of the greatest predictors of a child's academic success, and our goal is to increase the numbers of books in the homes for children in Baton Rouge.
