I am a former urban teacher and literacy coach who has founded a new nonprofit called BookMentors. BookMentors connects teachers, librarians, and students in need of books with donors interested in giving books. BookMentors also enables readers, writers, publishers and teachers to connect and share information about children's and YA literature. Our website and book donation service launches in June. For more information and to leave contact info for the launch: www.bookmentors.org
