Books Save Lives is a direct community support program created to serve children in 6th through 12th grades. Our primary strategy is to position ourselves into previously established areas where children frequent and train the adults to utilize the techniques outlined in our 8 Step VISCERAL Method which uses a combination of both literacy and self-awareness to empower children. We will then supply books proven to improve literacy and bolster children’ self-awareness.
Books Save Lives understands that quality, diverse literacy is paramount in our students’ lives and the texts teachers offer must be relatable as well as accessible. BSL assists teachers, schools and districts in creating classroom libraries as well as school libraries that reflect the diverse student population our schools serve. We also provide the training teachers need in order to effectively and efficiently run a classroom with choice/independent reading as the main focus of instruction and learning.
