Panel of speakers
In Kalamazoo, Michigan we believe that reaching teens in our community means reaching ALL of our teens ...including those in juvenile detention. With author book visits, book discussion groups, and a bedtime reading program called The Late Show, librarians and community volunteers (including judges and police officers) bring books and a love of reading to detained students through a unique set of programs. This partnership with our Kalamazoo County Juvenile Home has a long history of success, due to our belief that all of our kids deserve the opportunity to connect with books and reading.
