EZ Read Community Bookshelves: an ongoing project of the Literacy Coalition, started in 2012. The Literacy Coalition accepts donations of appropriate reading material for children and adults, which are then redistributed throughout Oneida and Herkimer counties. Labeled EZ Read Community Bookshelves are in community spaces throughout both counties. Community members are encouraged to take books home for FREE. A network of Bookshelf Guardians help take care of and restock the bookshelves to continue the distribution of free books into homes all over Herkimer and Oneida County. Please contact Joanna Robertson, EZ Read Bookshelf Project Leader, at with questions or for more information on how to donate books or help maintain the EZ Read Community Bookshelf Program.
