My name is Dolia and I LOVE literacy! I personally love to learn all the time, and as a mother, I feel it is my responsibility to foster learning in young people's lives! Guess what? So does Marjie, the steward of the Little Free Library on the Square in Monticello , GA, and YOU SHOULD TOO! Why, you say?
Because... The single most significant factor influencing a child’s early educational success is an introduction to books and being read to at home prior to beginning school. National Commission on Reading, 1985
Marjie put out a request for more books for young readers to stock the LFL on the Square, and when I saw the request, I knew I could help through Usborne Books & More (UBAM). UBAM publishes books for ages 0-young adult and has an amazing program that matches 50% of donations! So with your help, we can get TONS of books into the hands of young Monticello readers! The beauty of a Little Free Library is that it is FREE, EASY to access, and ENCOURAGES reading and literacy.
