Our staff cheered as we finished the final vote tallies late last night! First Book could not be more excited that all y’all who voted chose to support our Book Relief initiative by choosing Louisiana as the state where we will hold the next 50,000 book distribution!
The 50,000 books will be sent to a donated warehouse in Louisiana and then organizations from across the state will be able to apply for books online — enabling them to choose the best titles for their programs. Our staff will meet volunteers at the warehouse and then sort through all of the books, getting them ready for our recipient groups.
Thanks to everyone who voted — and especially to BookExpo America for supporting our efforts! You have truly helped us bring Literacy and Justice to all!!
