About IRW

Island Readers & Writers, a Maine non-profit, grew out of the belief that children who are inspired to be strong readers, and to learn through reading and book-related experiences, will be more engaged in their own education, and will achieve a broader understanding of the world and their own potential.

For ten years, Island Readers & Writers (IRW) has been bringing book-centered enrichment programs to predominately remote and under-resourced communities in Hancock and Washington Counties and across coastal Maine. Our school and community programs augment the quality of children’s education by sparking imaginations, developing critical and reflective thinking skills, and expanding worlds through hands-on learning in natural history, science, literature, writing, and art. IRW works closely with teachers, school administrators, community and non-profit leaders, Maine authors and illustrators, scientists, historians, and volunteers to ensure that our programs meet the individual needs and interests of our constituents – the children, teachers, and families in the communities we serve.
