Diversify a Library

From the Cabrini University Women’s Basketball Team

Children’s Book World is excited to partner with the Cabrini University Women’s Basketball Team in their Diversify a Library project.  Kate Pearson, Head Women’s Basketball Coach, and Amber Keys, Assistant Basketball Coach and first grade teacher, are working to create more diverse classroom libraries for Cabrini alumni who shape the lives of youth through teaching. This project aims to help teachers not only to expand their classroom libraries but also, more importantly, to diversify them. 

We stand with them in believing that diverse literature in classrooms benefits every child in the class, especially children who don’t often see themselves represented in books.

Amber and Kate consciously chose to include CBW to help support our independent bookstore and we are offering a 20% discount for all books purchased for Diversify a Library. If you’d like to support this program, please use the links below to purchase books through CBW for donation. We’ll make sure that Amber and Kate receive the books by the project’s deadline of August 7th.

Thank you for your support for this important project!
