Drive for Diversity: A Madrona Library Book Drive

Did you know that only 22 % of children’s books contain diverse main characters? The rest are white, male characters. This limits a child’s chance to read about different life experiences and leaves many children without characters to relate to.

You can help by donating a diverse book!

What: A book drive to collect 1,000 books with diverse characters for the school and your classroom libraries.

When: April 24 – May 12

Where: Donate by putting books in the collection box in your center, in the gym for Middle School, or mail the book directly to the school Attn: Soleil

How: See www.madronsoleil.blogspot.com/2017/03/book-drive.html for book recommendations, an informational video, and more information.

Spread the word: Feel free to share this on social media! We will accept donations from anyone! Please do not include staff email addresses in social media posts.
