Please deliver your gently loved books to one of these donation sites by Thursday, September 20th:
Rep. Graig Meyer has partnered with Mighty Neighborly, the Caswell County Public Library, the Caswell Partnership for Children and the Local Foods Council to bring 14 Little Free Libraries to Caswell County.
Little Free Library is a nonprofit organization that inspires a love of reading, builds community, and sparks creativity by fostering neighborhood book exchanges around the world. Academically, children growing up in homes without books are on average three years behind children in homes with lots of books, even when controlled for other key factors. (M.D.R Evans et al, Research in Social Stratification and Mobility, June 2010). One of the most successful ways to improve the reading achievement of children is to increase their access to books, especially at home. But 61% of low-income families do not have any age-appropriate books for their kids at home. Little Free Libraries play an essential role by providing 24/7 access to books (and encouraging a love of reading!) in areas where books are scarce.
