Success Won’t Wait recently received an email from Librarian Erin Giles of The Central School. The Central School, located in Stanton, Delaware, is a special education school with a population close to 200 students. The school has never had a library before and 98% of the students come from low-income households.
“When we ask students what they read at home most have no books in their house, have never owned a “new” book that was theirs to keep, many have never been to library before,” wrote Erin. “We felt that it was imperative to give our students access to a library where they can experience reading and learn to love escaping into the pages of a book.”
When we read this, we knew we had to help immediately! So, Success Won’t Wait recently donated 225 pre-teen and teen books to The Central School’s new library — with many, many more to come!
