Hi there Omaha. We’re DIBS for Kids, and we’ve got a lot of work to do.

We are working with public schools in Omaha to provide an opportunity for all kids, Pre-K through 2nd grade, to read a book at home, every night for fun.

But you won’t only hear about our effort to Deliver Infinite Book Shelves (DIBS) to kids all across the Omaha community…

  • Through this blog we will share our logic for why this program is attempting to cut to the heart of many of the social issues and challenges our public schools face. And why teachers are not ideally positioned to take these things on themselves.
  • We will also share just why we see so much promise in the 515 families that we have the pleasure of serving. And how with merely a little support we see parents serving as the catalyst for dramatic school improvement.
Oh, and you’re going to hear about Omaha.
Lots about Omaha.
Like how we believe this community is uniquely poised to do things nationally-significant within our public schools…
Historically significant.
