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

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. Itโ€™s not a book drive. Our vision for this DIBS Drive (and future ones) is that the community can band together to raise money for individual classrooms looking to implement the DIBS program.

A vitamin vs. a pain pill: Why do we wait for kids to fall behind?

In the late 1800s, Joseph Malins, an English activist, wroteย a poem about a cliff, a fence and an ambulance. The gist: There's a cliff that's very pleasant to walk on, so many people in the town nearbyย venture close to its edge. Some slip and fall into the valley below, and the town decides somethingย has to be done.
