Adele Taylor, Adele's Literacy Library
Adele Taylor believes not only that everyone should be able to read, but that they should all “also have access to a good book!” That’s why in 2008, at only 13 years old, she started her own business.
Adele’s Literacy Library has since donated thousands of books and bookmarks to schools, libraries, and other organizations in need. Adele also runs 2 special programs:
1. Storytelling with Adele, in which she visits various groups to read aloud and then then discuss with them the selection.
2. Read All You Can, which is pretty much exactly what the name implies: students are challenged to read as many books as they can in one month’s time, at the end of which surprises from Adele are awarded to the winner.
