Teachers know that reading is important. If a child doesn't have books to read, it negatively affects their education. With too many Boston Public schools educating children without libraries in their buildings, it's the children that pay the price. Each semester Emerson College students and their Professor, Cathyn Edelstein, create a campaign for a different Boston Public school. The goal is to provide each benefiting school with enough books that the school can open its first library.
When young readers see themselves represented in the stories they read, they want to read more because they feel inspired, empowered, and self-confident.
Together, we can create positive change in our local school system, because every student should have the opportunity to be part of a story. Donate a book today!
