KNTR says they will also deliver 763 new children's books for library patrons to borrow. When asked why the program is helping libraries across the southwest, KNTR's Executive Director Jessica Payne said:

"A library is the heart of any community. Kids Need to Read not only invests in these indispensable bastions of literary treasure, it also encourages and connects the communities served by each library in order to inspire support for future generations."
