Laundromats Are Hosting Story Times for Kids!


It's safe to say that laundry days suck! Even more so when you have to spend the day at the laundromat. Can you say boring? Especially for children waiting on their parents. But, instead of asking kids to entertain themselves by watching the rinse cycle, librarians are visiting locations so they can read to the children.

The Too Small to Fail initiative has been trying to improve children’s literacy by bringing books, story time, and reading groups to unusual community spaces, such as laundromats.

The program is especially beneficial for closing the literacy gap between children from lower and higher-income families. I mean how awesome would this be if it was implemented at laundromats around the world right?
