BENEFITING: READER TO READER INC

EVENT DATE: May 01, 2013

THE STORY:

UPDATE: Thank you to everyone who supported this effort! The library has reopened (see the pretty pictures) with thousands of new books, contributed by Reader to Reader and, among others, the wonderful authors of the Magic Treehouse series. The books you helped provide were in Navajo, to help students continue to learn their native languages and keep their traditions alive. The principal, teachers and students are very grateful!

------------------------------------------------------------------

On September 12, the Mesa Elementary School Library located on the Navajo Nation in Shiprock, New Mexico, was destroyed by fire and all its contents were lost. The FBI is investigating the fire as arson.

Reader to Reader has pledged $50,000 worth of books to rebuild the library. 100% of the funds raised here on Crowdrise will go towards the purchase of Navajo language children's books, a vital aspect of Navajo education.

“It is extremely heartwarming that you are coming to our aid in our time of need,” said Mesa Elementary principal, Pandora Mike. "I am completely floored and it brings me to tears. Our hearts will be touched forever.”
