The Junior League of Boca Raton is turning to the community to help find deserving teachers in Boca Raton and Delray Beach to receive a new or upgraded classroom library.
On the heels of the organization launching its Learning Libraries community project, the Junior League of Boca Raton is accepting nominations for deserving teachers to receive the updated library.
The Learning Libraries community project, which focuses on providing children with access to books and reading, is looking for candidates who work at a Title 1 school or are able to showcase their unique need for a refreshed classroom library.
“We’re excited to launch this new community project and hope we can help lots of children develop a love of reading,” Junior League of Boca Raton President Jamie Sauer said in a statement.
The Junior League of Boca Raton will utilize a combination of new and gently used books to help upgrade the classroom libraries.
Since the start of the Learning Libraries initiative, the community project has collected over 700 books, impacting over 300 families. The Learning Libraries’ first free community library is at the Junior League of Boca Raton Community Garden in Meadows Park, 1300 NW Eighth St.
