In middle income neighborhoods the average ratio is 13 books per child. In low-income neighborhoods it’s ONE book for every 300 children.
St. Lucie Reads Little Library program puts a small tabletop library stocked with books in non-traditional locations like doctors’ offices, barbershops, laundromats and business waiting areas to share with children. The books can be borrowed or taken, as long as the kids promise to continue reading them at home. Our emphasis is on letting the children choose the books themselves and on helping them build home libraries. St. Lucie Reads partners help to stocks the Little Library and continue to replenish it as needed.
