Friends of Education offers free books

Published 6:28pm Wednesday, January 8, 2014

A non-profit organization is ready to offer a free book program to all students from Michigan who either struggle to read or cannot afford to buy new books.

Michigan Friends of Education (MFE) is a nonprofit organization dedicated to helping the community, especially for Michigan families who cannot afford to buy books for their children.

The new book program makes it possible for families to get books for free. MFE believes that every child deserves an opportunity to learn, grow and fulfill their dreams. Therefore, this program is focused towards helping kids who struggle with reading or want to improve their reading skills.

“We worked closely with a variety of publishers and booksellers to make this program available to Michigan families,” said Menachem Kniespeck, president and CEO of MFE. “The response from families has been overwhelmingly positive. Our volunteers are working extra shifts to quickly get books into the hands of thousands of kids.”

The books are free of charge and families may select as many as 14 books per order. Families are only responsible for the shipping charges along with a nominal handling fee of just $2. The shipping cost depends upon the total weight of books, packaging and package size.

 

Who is eligible for the MFEfamily.org Free Book Program?

Anybody residing in Michigan is eligible for this program. There are no income qualifications; however, families grappling with household finances, or those who have struggling school-aged readers, are encouraged to visit the site.

 

What kinds of books are available?

The free book program has a mix of chapter books, leveled-readers, study aids and activity books at all grade levels. The inventory changes frequently as new books arrive on a regular basis.
