Project poster

Green Hill School is a juvenile rehabilitation center serving young men. The library receives limited funding and struggles to maintain a current and relevant collection. Books serve as a valuable tool for emotional regulation, self-awareness, academic and personal growth, and pleasure. Access to books that meet their interests is crucial to the success of the residents. We utilized social media to crowdsource monetary donations and direct purchases from a curated wishlist. Eighty-seven percent of our wishlist was purchased, and we raised $2,160 in monetary donations. This will ensure a thorough library collection for current and future residents.
