A Library of My Own is a program to help foster renewed interest in reading and literacy.
With the help of the children we will build book cases that are theirs to take home.
We will supply the first book from our list of featured authors.
Once the child has read one book he will complete a book report on it's contents.
For each book and report completed the child will earn points that are redeemed at local retailers for merchandise.
At The Storytellers Book Fair we desire to bridge the gap between our ancestors and the children.
Our ancestors are the "Oral libraries" in our communities.
Stories, books, community information, poets and Griots are our vehicles and avenues.
Our hope in the very near future is to create an academy which emphasizes books (reading and literacy), basketball (skills camp) and good food (healthy eating).
