Michigan State University invites the public to help shine a light for children and teens on the world that Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. envisioned. The university wants to help open young minds with a virtual Stuff the Library project as part of its annual MLK celebration through the end of January.
“Our goal is to raise awareness and promote books with a diverse representation of people and topics. We want to get books into the hands of children in Ingham County and the surrounding area who are ages 0-18 by partnering with local schools and organizations,” said project co-creator Jaimie Hutchison, deputy director at the MSU WorkLife Office.
