Grant Awarded: $25,140

A mini-library of 10 books, designed by Illustration students from ArtCenter College of Design.

Distributed to schools and families through the Matènwa Community Learning Center, these books will encourage reading as part of everyday life and help to build habits and affinities that support education.
