Library Building Days
Books for a Benefit volunteers have become experts at designing and installing libraries in the community! Our library projects are meant to provide spaces for students to work productively in. We recognize that students are more likely to work in a space that is fun and vibrant for them to enjoy doing their work in. We work to build a substantial library addition to facilities with no cost burden to their budgets. Books for a Benefit aims to promote literacy and increase interest in literacy in youth populations. Our efforts have allowed us to create environments that promote and facilitate interest in reading through providing a safe, calm space to escape into the stories. Our impacts have been long lasting in these communities as the libraries provided will remain with the programs and the interest sparked in the youth will follow them throughout their educations.
