Frederick Douglass said,
“Once you learn to read, you will be FOREVER FREE”.
Those words still ring true today.
A few years ago, I assumed all children had books in their homes. Working as a substitute teacher at an elementary school, opened my eyes to the fact that my assumption was wrong. Many of my students did not own books and could barely read.
I founded Forever Free Books as my mission to ensure every child I come in contact with has the opportunity to own a book of their choice to begin a home library.
We conduct FREE literacy events throughout the Washington, DC area, where children enjoy story time, arts and crafts and “shop” for FREE books.
My goal is help reduce illiteracy one child at a time.
