To empower disadvantaged children and improve Central Virginia through literacy initiatives.
A community where every child has access to high quality books and is read to every day.
Seeing a need to help combat Central Virginia's literacy crisis, elementary school teachers formed Love of Learning to provide low-income children with books, read-alouds, and one-on-one tutoring.
We're a collaborative team of local educators, business leaders, and community members who are passionate about improving the reading skills of low-income kids in Central Virginia.
Your contributions help to improve the lives of low-income children in Central Virginia. Love of Learning is a 501(c)(3) tax-deductible charity.
Did you know the most successful way to improve the reading achievement of low-income children is to increase their access to books?
Did you know that reading aloud
to children is the single most important activity for eventual success in school?
Because 61% of low-income families have no age-appropriate books in their homes, creating a steady stream of new, age-appropriate books has been shown to nearly triple interest in reading within months.
Kids growing up in homes with at least 20 books get 3 years more schooling than children from homes without books. Combine those books with frequent read-alouds and lives transform!
