56% of 3rd grade students attending Metro Atlanta public schools are reading below grade level.
HOME LIBRARY PROJECT
Nearly 26,000 children in our local communities and public school districts cannot read, including:
- Atlanta Public Schools
- Clayton County Schools
- City Schools of Decatur
- Cobb County Schools
- DeKalb County Schools
- Fulton County Schools
- Gwinnett County Schools
- Marietta City Schools
They. Can. Not. Read.
And that is exactly why, even during a pandemic, Everybody Wins! Atlanta is committed to distributing books to low-income families and to schools throughout our communities.
The Home Library Project
brings books to babies, school-aged children, teens, and adults, because research shows that books in the home increases reading proficiency and career success. Through partnerships with other local organizations, books are distributed at places like food pantries, after school programs, and apartment complexes.
The Classroom Library Project
provides classroom book sets to local elementary schools. Teachers use the books during instructional time, and then students take the books home to enjoy with their families.
