40% of Boston public schools do not have libraries, and we at On the Same Page endeavor to change that. In collaboration with Emerson College, we partner with a teacher at a Boston public school to learn about their students and what books they love. Then we reach out to the greater Boston community for donations to get books into the students' hands.
We are passionate about not only getting the students books but getting them a diverse array of books that they feel represented in. Exposure to a wide variety of books improves vocabulary and language skills.
Everyone deserves the opportunity to be a part of a story.
Samuel Adams Elementary is the beneficiary of our most recent campaign. We are working to provide their students with a mobile library that is filled with diverse books!
