The TACSRI Board is happy to announce that our Annual April 23rd National Sovereignty and Children's Festival marked the official launch of our "Turkish-language Children's Book Drive," a campaign to establish a Turkish-language book collection in the Ocean State Public Library system.

Books donated by TACSRI will be accessible free of charge to everyone at all public libraries in RI.

The TACSRI Board strongly supports bilingual literacy and our children's access to Turkish-language books, and is therefore especially excited about this campaign and the additional visibility it will bring to our children in the RI educational system.

To support our book drive, we welcome your contributions in the form of any gently-used or new Turkish children's books, or via check payable to TACSRI, PO Box 603104, Providence, RI, 02906.

For your convenience, we welcome online donations as well. You may use the Paypal "Donate" feature on our website. *All donations to TACSRI are tax-deductible.*

If you are interested in mailing books to TACSRI, please contact tacsri2011@gmail.com

Thank you very much in advance for your support of your community! Please feel free to spread the word!

TACS-RI has been in partnership with the Ocean State Libraries, and, as of March 2012, we have succeeded in the formal acceptance of the first few Turkish-language children's books into the public library catalogue! You may access the books at the East Side Rochambeau Public library branch (Providence), or you may request it at your own local public library through their interlibrary loan service.
