CURRENT COMMUNITY PARTNERS
New Haven Reads
The JLGNH has partnered with New Haven Reads for the past few years collecting books for their Book Bank, a unique resource that is neither a library nor a bookstore. Rather, all of the books provided are free to members of the community in need.
Mission: Founded to share the joy and power of reading, New Haven Reads partners with the community to provide free 1-on-1 tutoring, educational family support, and a book bank to empower aspiring readers to master the literacy skills needed to thrive in school and life.
