Gibbs Smith has been announced as the first partner in SIBA'S One Book at a Time (OBAAT) Publisher Partnership program. Sponsored by Family-to-Family, which matches book donors with readers, participating SIBA booksellers like Avid Bookshop in Athens, Ga., offer listed book selections on their sites for book donor referrals.
As Jill Schaugaard of Gibbs Smith explained: "One Book at a Time has provided an opportunity for us to share our enthusiasm and love of books and learning. Many of us are avid readers and we are happy to pass on a legacy of literature beginning with the youngest minds. Gibbs Smith is thrilled to be able to participate in such a wonderful program!"
"I'm delighted that Gibbs Smith sees the value in providing good books to needy kids," said Wanda Jewell, executive director of SIBA. "It is my hope that other publishers will come on board as monthly partners in our One Book at a Time effort. Hundreds of donors purchase new books each month for hundreds of children. I'm a donor myself and I love choosing books for my kid and he is delighted to get them. He'll be getting a Gibbs-Smith book this month."
