Shelves to Fill


Inspired by last year’s video by Melissa Jackson, librarian at Ballou Senior High School in Washington DC, Guys Lit Wire held two book fairs that helped Ballou move from having a library with “less than one book for each of its 1,200 students at the beginning of 2011 to a ratio now of two books per student.”

Hoping to further decrease the school’s “literary deficit,” GLW is kicking off another book fair. Check out how to go about purchasing books off their wish list.
