Lincoln High School's youth-led literacy movement

Mrs. Sierra, born and raised in Tacoma, is a Teacher Librarian for Tacoma Public Schools and the advisor for Project Lit Abes, the school's book club and a group of students at Lincoln High School committed to reading good books, discussing the issues they care about and serving the school and members of our Tacoma community.

In the wake of the pandemic, students in the club recognized the need for books by and for kids of color and distributed around 200 books written by BIPOC authors with subjects that reflect BIPOC communities this summer.  The books were distributed to little free libraries, including the Salishan libraries stewarded by Rotary, in Tacoma's East and South end. 

Join the January 21st meeting to learn more about the club's journey in sharing culturally-relevant books, supporting incredible authors and, most of all, celebrating and enjoying books!
