25 Stories of Impact: Story #11

Friends of the Danville Public Library, 2020 CFDRR Competitive Grant Recipient

According to Friends of the Danville Public Library, they were able to start the Second Chance Book Club, bringing a book club into the Women’s Jail Annex.  Seventy-one women, most of whom are self-described non-readers with an average third-grade reading level, have read 25 novels.  The children of the women in the club have even downloaded the books they are reading so they can talk about them during visits.
