INFOGRAPHIC: National Book Foundation’s BookUp Helps Foster a Lifelong Love of Reading

Since its inception in 2007, the National Book Foundation’s BookUp program has provided over 25,000 books to students free of charge, and is hoping to reverse the unfortunate trend of children losing interest in reading for pleasure throughout their teenage years. Currently helping over 300 students annually, BookUp is hoping to expand far beyond New York City and grow their program on a national scale. For more information on the program and how to help, check out the infographic below.
