Build A Classroom Library for At-Risk Children

A microproject by Raising A Reader


This project will build classroom libraries for Raising A Reader sites allowing children and families access to more high-quality books, including titles and genres not found in typical school libraries. Classroom libraries will match the students' needs and include bilingual, wordless, touch & feel, STEM books, and more!

Several Raising A Reader sites do not have dedicated libraries for children and families to use. This project will allow Raising A Reader to provide specific titles and genres to match students' needs and interests.


This project will bring more books to Raising A Reader programs that do not have a dedicated permanent library on-site.

Long-Term Impact

The project will provide vital literacy materials and support to 425 vulnerable U.S. children and families. By improving the language and literacy skills of children at risk of educational failure and strengthening parent-child relationships and family educational involvement, this project will have a far-reaching impact on children and families.
