Wash & Learn program

index.aspxLibraries Without Borders, a non-profit organization formed to ensure free access to libraries for everyone, hosted a program in Detroit this past summer called “Wash & Learn.” Taking advantage of the fact that kids and parents have lots of free time while waiting for their laundry, LWB’s goal was to provide literacy corners in laundromats. They partnered with a branch of the Detroit Public Library, among others, with librarians and facilitators bringing computers and age appropriate books to offer literacy programs to those who don’t have the option of attending literacy programs at the library branch. What an amazing idea, and LWB’s aim is to expand laundromat literacy corners in cities across the U.S. You can listen to the webcast here.
