Books In Every Home VIP is sponsoring an on-campus book drive February 14-28 to promote children’s literacy. Faculty, staff and students are encouraged to donate gently used or new children’s books in bins marked “Book It Forward”, which are located on the first floor in Albertson’s Library, Liberal Arts Building room 208, and in the Department of Literacy, Language and Culture on the 5th floor of the Education building.

Books in Every Home is a collaboration between the Department of Literacy, Language and Culture, the Department of English, and the College of Innovation and Design. Since 2017, the Books in Every Home project shared over 1300 books with children in the community.
