Things I Wish The Book Blogging Community Would Do/ posted in: Reading
As bloggers we’re good at doing what we do. We read and write and discuss books among ourselves. But what can we do to pass on a love of reading to others?
You know you have extra books laying around that you are never going to read again. Yes, you do! Why not give them a good home?
- Donate to a teacher you know if they would be able to use them in their classroom or school library
- Check out the ALA’s extensive list of places to donate.
- Books for Africa is another idea
Start or support a Little Free Library
I have one of these in my neighborhood. I drop off books there sometimes. Need more info?
Volunteer at a Local Literacy Program
- Read to kids at a library or school
- Help out with an ESL class
- Work with an adult literacy program
What other ideas can you think of?
