This first nationwide Read for My School campaign extends last year's introduction of this program in the state of Florida. We aim to give 150,0000 books through Read for My School, though it looks like this may happen in less than a single week.
What the excitement around this campaign shows, again, is how energized people are about supporting their local communities. It also shows how well school communities organize to get things done. More than 20 schools across the country have already reached the maximum allotment of 500 books donated to their libraries. In all, we've seen readers from all 50 states visit We Give Books, and traffic to the site seems to be picking up rather than slowing down.
There's still time to read for your school! Log on to We Give Books today to get started, and be sure to visit the Read for My School campaign page to learn more. And please spread the word. We'd like as many local schools and school libraries to benefit as possible.
