Bookcase Project benefits young readers
John Rey remembers reading about an Arkansas project that tried to improve literacy by giving children in low-income homes their own bookcases and small starter libraries.
Rey bookmarked the article in August 2011 and was inspired to start a similar project by spearheading the DeKalb/Sycamore Bookcase Project for children of the Two Rivers Head Start program in Sycamore.
“[I thought] it was a very practical project that would be doable in the DeKalb community,” said Rey, who is the project chairman.
