Book drives save lives! (Or at least, help students become readers who become self-sufficient who save their own lives and possibly others.)  See more

BENEFITING: READER TO READER INC

Kat Libby

THE STORY:

Many schools have extremely outdated and under-resourced libraries, which has a direct negative effect on the learning of the students. The quantity, quality and variety of library materials play an essential part in student achievement. Studies in Colorado, Pennsylvania and Alaska show that state test scores are higher in schools with higher quality libraries.

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 info@readertoreader.org or calling 413-256-8595.
