BENEFITING: READER TO READER INC
Unfortunately, the 2011 federal budget will eliminate the Improving Literacy for School Libraries grant program, which will drastically reduce the funds available for updating school libraries. In 2009, over 30 states made significant budget cuts to K-12 education, including libraries.
Here's how you can help: hold a book drive for a school library! Reader to Reader will match you with an under-resourced school library based on their needs and your collections. Please read the instructions here (http://readertoreader.org/bookdrives.html). If you have any questions please contact Reader to Reader by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org or calling 413-256-8595.
