Biloxi Reads!

Biloxi Reads! is a reading enrichment initiative brought to our community by Gulf Coast Training & Education Services, LLC in partnership with Southern Bound Book Shop here in Biloxi, Mississippi.

We started over the summer because we wanted to encourage students to continue reading throughout the summer and foster a love of reading for our entire community!  In the fall of 2020, we turned our attention to the senior citizens in our community, and we kicked off 2021focusing on our veterans.

For the month of May, it's all about our MOM'S! 

To enter, all you have to do is post videos or pictures on our Gulf Coast Training & Education Services Facebook page telling us why you love reading, what books are your favorite or what books you would love to read!  From Monday to Thursday each week, we will accept entries (1 per person) on our page and each week on Friday, we will announce the name of the winner.  The winner will receive a $25 gift card from Southern Bound Book Shop to purchase the book(s) of their choice!

In return, we will ask that you please sign a release so we may post a photo of the winner on our social media pages!  All winners must use their gift 2020 gift cards cards no later than January 31st, and their 2021 cards by December 31, 2021.


Please contact Sheila Farr at Gulf Coast Training & Education Services, LLC, at (228) 229-3117 for additional information.  We also provide free literacy coaching, so if you know of someone who could benefit, please let us know. We're excited to bring this to Biloxi and hope to be able to continue similar reading programs throughout the remainder of the year and beyond!
