The Book Love Foundation believes that a love of reading is essential. We assist teachers with building inclusive classroom libraries to inspire and nurture a lasting love of reading. The Book Love Foundation seeks teachers who demonstrate a passion for promoting a hunger for books. These teachers recognize the diversity of every class of readers and they challenge each student to build an independent reading life of increasing depth and joy.
