MADISON, Wis. (WMTV) - The Madison Reading Project is in a new location, filling a storefront after seven years of hard work.

The new location at 1337 Greenway Cross is a big step up for the non-profit, offering more space for books and events. Book readings, clubs and teacher’s events can all occur from the Madison Reading Project’s new location.

While the location is new, the goal is the same: Getting free books to kids across Madison. During the pandemic, the organization worked with teachers, schools and various groups to get more books out to families in the area. Last year, the project gave away 75,000 books, and last weekend, founder Rowan Childs and the group hit the 200,000 books given away.

Now, they are hoping to keep fueling reading in the area from the brand new space.

If you would like to donate or pick up books, go to the Madison Reading Project’s website for details.
