Food deserts and book deserts are insidious and intertwined. Let's irrigate them!
After 14 months, we had our first book fair while hitting a 500,000 book-giveaway milestone! It took us four years to get here, happening at South Philadelphia's John H. Taggart Elementary School - 2,100 books given away! We will hit a million in under two years.
Scroll through the pics and see Exective Director Larry Abrams receiving from board member Janet Edelstein a BIG BOOK celebrating a BIG NUMBER!
Look for Larry next to David Hensel, a teacher-visionary at Taggart determined to grant each child at Taggart a 50-book library of their own. Teachers, write to firstname.lastname@example.org if you share David's vision.
And finally, see young readers selecting their own books! Together we can create the next generation of
Nobel Prize winners!
