The University of Louisville Department of Pediatrics actively promotes early literacy at its general pediatric practices to encourage school success. Working in partnership with Half Price Books and Carmichael's KIDS, the department is holding a month-long book drive to supplement its supply of books for patients.The UofL general pediatric practices have given out more than 100,000 new and used English and Spanish language books since 1993. Children receive new books at every well-child checkup, ages 2 months through 5 years old. Gently used books are given to siblings and to patients in the office for sick visits.
