In celebration of National Literacy Month, United Way is working to help students in the Sacramento area learn to read.
Their Read to Succeed campaign aims to help elementary school students build their reading skills.
“During the month of March, we’re asking community members to participate by donating books or volunteering to install little libraries,” said the United Way’s Amber Lovett.
The three by three wooden structures will hold between 20-30 books and will be installed in neighborhoods across the Capital City region.
“Sometimes a community member will have one at the edge of their front yard,” Lovett explained. “You could also find a little library in front of a school or community center.”
Lovett says the Read to Succeed program focuses on literacy because it directly impacts a child's ability to reach their full potential.
