Alain L. Locke


With your help City Readers was able to purchase 115 books for the students and teachers at Alain Locke Elementary, PS 208.

On June 11 we visited PS 208 to deliver the books and speak to the students about how they can learn from and enjoy the books they read.

P.S. 208 has approximately 250 students ranging from grade 3 to grade 5. The school was recently featured in a New York Times article and has been a beacon of scholastic excellence and a shining example for New York City public schools. Even with its success, PS 208 still finds itself in need of extra resources to help support the reading dreams and literary ambitions of its students. City Readers is proud to do what it can to support PS 208’s students.
