If you receive an invitation to our Book Distribution Survey, please click here to participate.

To further combat the spread of COVID-19, the City of Memphis has issued a Safer at Home Order—directing all residents of Memphis to stay inside their homes, and immediately limit all movement outside of their homes beyond what is absolutely necessary to take care of essential needs.

Literacy Mid-South hopes to provide resources for families with elementary aged students at home. These resources will allow families to provide quality, literacy experiences while students & families do their part to limit the spread of COVID-19.

Be sure to check out our Read-Aloud Videos as well. We've included lesson plans & activities to go along with each book.

Please check back soon as we will be updating this page regularly.

Consult the Centers for Disease Control & Prevention for the latest information on COVID-19.

We were the people who were not in the papers. 

We lived in the blank white spaces at the edges of print. It gave us more freedom. 

We lived in the gaps between the stories.
