The Open Book Project is the first step toward building a larger city-wide movement to help provide high-interest books, practical resources and support, love and encouragement to students and teachers in the Little Rock School District's (LRSD) most disadvantaged schools.
Our current priority schools are Hall High School and Henderson Middle School. With your help, we hope to expand our project to serve the remaining LRSD schools in academic distress in 2016-17 and beyond: Cloverdale Middle School, J.A. Fair High School, and McClellan High School.
What We will Accomplish together
- Help teachers build their classroom libraries and school supply closets.
- Help schools transform their media centers into 21st century spaces that help inspire a lifelong love of reading and learning.
- Give middle and high school students high-interest books, so they can start building personal libraries of their own.
- Recruit an army of volunteers to serve in schools with the least amount of community involvement and fundraising.
