Help Provide Books for Disadvantaged Youth

Latinos in Social Media has created a program that lets you provide books for disadvantaged youth. Here's how it works:

  1. Visit the Latinos in Social Media Website to nominate and vote for the U.S. library you think most deserving
  2. Donate books. If you are an author, publisher or reader, share your books with young people.
  3. The library with the most votes will receive all the donated books.

This is your chance to help make a difference for youth literacy.

With 1 out of 5 children in the country being Latinos and Latino educational levels reaching the point of national crisis, it is imperative that we do something to promote reading and support the faltering library system. Our future as a culture and as a nation depends on it.

Visit the Latinos in Social Media Website for more details.
