Whether you live in California or elsewhere we hope you are staying dry, warm, and safe.

Our work to expand the program is going very well.

We're very excited to be talking with Alameda Unified School District about providing 800 Kindles for new classroom programs. This would be a huge project with the potential to significantly impact the reading lives of so many young people.

A new teacher at Alameda Community Learning Center is interested in bringing in 80 Kindles for reading programs at their middle and high school.

And we’re talking with a new teacher at Achieve Academy in Oakland about adding their classroom to the program. We hope this partnership will inspire other teachers at the school to enroll in our classroom program.

In an exciting use of non-textbook materials, eleven biology students at Latitude High School in Oakland are reading Braiding Sweetgrass and The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks this semester. It’s encouraging to see students in a science class bringing “non-traditional” materials into their classroom learning about the world around us.

Finally, we received a fun reminder of a Facebook post from 11 years ago.

 “With a donation from Lisa in San Francisco, the Kindle Classroom Project has reached 30 Kindles, a full classroom set!”

My, how far we’ve come!
