Non-Profit: Book Harvest
61% of America’s low-income children are growing up in homes without any books. Book Harvest’s big dream is to change that reality — to provide home libraries to every low-income child in Durham and beyond — and to demonstrate all the benefits that accrue when children in poverty grow up with a wealth of books at home.
In its first six years, Book Harvest placed more than 500,000 donated books in the hands and homes of low-income children in the Triangle – an average of more than a thousand books a week.
