The Written Word
The Written Word Committee oversees PECAC's literary activities: The County Reads; A Book in Every Child's Hand; Prescription to Read; and the Children's Book Bank.
The Written Word Committee is responsible for County Kids Read - A Book in Every Child's Hand. The mission of County Kids Read is to address the link between poverty and literacy by providing free books to low income families and at risk children and youth in Prince Edward County. County Kids Reads works with thirteen community partners and hands out five hundred books monthly.
We currently store and display our books in a newly renovated space at St. Mary Magdalene Church in Picton, where partner organizations, parents, and children can come and make their book selection.
