It’s very simple. Access to books is key to building reading skills. And research confirms that the number of books in the home has a direct impact on reaching achievement.
In middle income neighborhoods the average ratio is 13 books per child.
In low-income neighborhoods it’s ONE book for every 300 children.
The Little Library initiative allows local churches and businesses to set up a small library of children’s books in their lobby or office to share with children. The books can be borrowed or taken, as long as the kids promise to continue reading them at home.
Currently more than 50 local organizations have Little Libraries and we are actively recruiting more.
If your business, organization or church location would be interested in hosting a Little Library, fill out the contact form below and someone will be in touch to arrange a set up time.
