Oakton Elementary School 

Young, Black & Lit continued its partnership with Oakton Elementary School this month when we stopped by Oakton's Story Store (pictured left) and set up a table to give away some free children's books during lunch periods! Thank you for having us Dr. Allen and many thanks to every volunteer who helps make the Story Store such a special space for students to find new reads! 

Burst Into Books!

Young, Black & Lit had the opportunity to partner with a fantastic youth literacy organization in Chicago, Burst Into Books!, to participate in Family Literacy Night at The New King Academy for Social Justice (pictured right). We had a great time giving away books and interacting with students and their families.
