We’d like to recognize and thank our generous 2020 donors.
Shyam Shinde Memorial Fund
In life, Mr. Shyam Shinde was an avid reader. He enjoyed visiting the Mary L. Stephens Davis Branch Library on a weekly basis and borrowing reading material from the library. In 2020, Mr. Shinde’s family established the Shyam Shinde Memorial Fund to honor his love of reading. Donated funds are used to purchase books that are distributed to local families to establish literacy-rich learning environments in their homes. Studies show that children who enter Kindergarten with early literacy skills are more likely to read at grade level by 3rd grade and graduate from high school.
Each dollar you give helps YCLF grow libraries.
Your $50 donation will fund ten books for a local family to help them build their home library.
Your $250 donation will fund starter home libraries for five families.
A $500 donation will create literacy rich environments in the homes of ten families.
