Now you can win a Nook and a lot more (including a Target gift card, bookshelf and Fatboy chair) with a Target giveaway valued at over $500.
This great giveaway is in collaboration with the Target School Library Makeover Program, which is a part of Target’s commitment to helping more children learn to read proficiently by the end of third grade. Target is on track to give $1 billion for education with the goal to breathe new life into elementary school libraries across the country. This year’s program will include three key components:
Library Makeovers: Target and The Heart of America Foundation will transform 32 school libraries across the country. Each of the remodeled spaces will feature 2,000 new books, furniture, carpet and shelves, and a complete technology upgrade, including new iPads. Each student will also receive seven new books to take home.
On September 7, 2012, Denver’s very own Godsman Elementary School will be receiving a library makeover! Past Colorado recipients of this great program have included Denver’s Cowell Elementary School (2009), Park Lane Elementary School in Aurora (2010) and Lasley Elementary School in Lakewood (2011). Check-out this sample makeover (click for full-size picture):
Reading Grants: Target plans to provide $1.5 million in reading grants to more than 100 schools that have previously received a library makeover as a result of the Target School Library Makeover program. The grants will be used to improve reading proficiency.
Literacy Pilot Program: Target will work with school districts in Los Angeles and Washington, D.C. to develop a literacy pilot. In total, twelve schools were chosen to participate in this innovative program.
