Across the country, public school libraries, including elementary and middle school ones serving kids in the prime of jump-starting their literacy, have been hit hard by budget cuts. We strongly feel that providing reading material to students and community members that might have limited access to libraries will continue to fuel their literacy journey. We hope to inspire, motivate and encourage all those who visit our Little Lockers.

The Little Locker Project was developed with the simple concept of providing books and resources to students, parents and guardians in the areas we serve. Similar to the ‘Little Libraries’, students and community members can visit any of our Little Lockers and borrow a book to read. Each locker is filled with books and resources based on the partnership. For example, many of our schools and parent centers request bi-lingual books.

During the summer months, we supply our lockers with outdoor activities, crafts and art projects to help encourage creativity and reduce screen time.

Currently our Little Lockers are geared towards elementary and middle schools.
