Help promote literacy in Baton Rouge

More Info

we 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.   There are over 5,040 children ages 18 and under in Baton Rouge . 1,577 of those children are ages 5 and under. If we raise $2,000, UBAM will match $500, totaling $2,500 in books!! That's like investing almost $1 in the home education of every child under 5 in Baton Rouge !
