Women, Infants, and Children (WIC)

WIC, a program administered by the Food and Nutrition Service branch of the USDA, supports and educates new mothers and young children who are at risk due to their low family income. Bookworm Central works with local-level WIC agencies to offer educational materials to families in the program, with a particular emphasis on health- and nutrition-related resources.

Our philosophy

We believe that good literature has the power to provoke thought, spark imagination, and shape character. It reinforces the concepts essential to civilized society: courage, compassion, integrity, goodness and gratitude. Books bring these gifts to life, helping children develop inner resources that can be drawn upon throughout their lives.

“Staff, parents, and students were all impressed and in awe of the quality and selection of books on offer. There was an excitement and buzz about the school all week. Children running to me with checks, reporting back to me that they had already finished the book they bought the day before, and often parents popping in more than once to purchase…. the POS system was a breeze. I trained different volunteers every two hours, each day, and it was very manageable to everyone.” Kristin Teeters, Librarian, British School of Washington
