Kum & Go Adopts a DIBS for Kids School

Not a Book Drive, a DIBS Drive: Turning the Page on Traditional Book Distribution

At DIBS for Kids, we are revolutionizing the way Omaha thinks about book drives. Communities across the nation often conduct book drives in an attempt to breathe new life into the books stowed away in attic boxes or that are sitting on children's bookshelves, outgrown by their readers.

The Power of Choice and Home-Run Books

Allowing children to make their own decisions fosters a passion that just isn't attainable through mandated reading. At DIBS for Kids, we value the power of choice and we strive to provide "home-run books" for all our students. Home-run books are the books that kids want to read over and over again. This idea of high-interest books stems from one DIBS student.

The Secret to Better Writing

The first time I met Dr. Phoebe Stubblefield, she began our conversation with, "I see so many awful writers in college."
