PNWA & The Community

PNWA and the community

PNWA does many things to help and encourage writers, but it could do little without the help of its volunteers. Learn more


In 2008 we partnered with Echo Lake Elementary School to launch a program dedicated to the love of writing and reading in children. Authors engage the students over a multiweek period on the world of writing and reading.

With expansion on the brain, PNWA wants to bring this rewarding program to as many children as possible. We are currently looking into other elementary schools in Western Washington that are will be a great match for this program.

If you think you know the perfect school for this program please contact us.


The KCLS Foundation supports programs that reach our and encourage residents of all ages to enjoy reading and learning. Each year nearly 2,000 children, youths, and adults benefit from the Foundation-supports programs in our libraries and in our communities.
  • Funding for books in the four Library2Go! vans. These units visit day-care homes and centers, apartment complexes, community centers, senior centers, and other venues.
  • Books for Babies provides reading tips, packets, books, and an Early Literacy DVD to low-income parents of newborns.
  • Play and Learn is a pilot project at two libraries that involves parents and focuses on early literacy activities.
  • Reach Out and Read supports conversations about reading during visits to pediatricians.
  • The Ready to Read program bring early literacy training to parents and caregivers.

Thank you to our supporters and members!
