CHOOSE + KEEP
In low-income neighborhoods, there is only one book per every 300 children.
After hosting numerous Leaders + Readers School Book Drives and donating thousands of books to fill the classrooms and libraries of schools throughout the Los Angeles area, we realized there was one more step we could be taking…why not ensure that every student, at every school we visit gets to take home a book of their own to keep?!
And so, the CHOOSE + KEEP Book Fair was born!
At every Leaders + Readers school delivery, our team sets up a pop-up “CHOOSE + KEEP” Book Fair during lunch, recess, and before school starts, utilizing a portion of the books donated. Every student at the recipient school will have a chance to “shop” for their very own books to take home with them so they can start building their own home libraries!
*We are now expanding and hosting Choose + Keep Book Fairs at organizations throughout Los Angeles! If you would like us to come and set up one of our Choose + Keep Book Fairs at your school or organization, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org!
We would LOVE for you to donate your books to be used for our local Los Angeles initiatives. Please email our Operations Manager, Alesha, at email@example.com for more details!
All book donations can be shipped to or dropped off at our office located at 1448 15th St. #202, Santa Monica, CA 90404. Our tax ID is #26-3245228.
