I give to this organization because of the service they provide to the Gary, IN community. They give thousands of books to children and adults who are unable to have home libraies in their home. I have seen children clutch a book with a smile of unbelief and delight when told that it is now theirs to keep. The GLC also organize adults to mentor students in the gender academies in the school district. Students are turned on to reading by playing a game of "Reading Pays", lead by the mentors, students respond to questions about the books they have been given the previous month to read. I applaud this organization for making Gary a Reading city!
