Wednesday, November 1st, 2017 was a night of  celebration with Philadelphia's
Champions of Literacy

Philadelphia Leaders Working Together to Ensure that Every Child has Access to Books and Every Opportunity to Pursue their Dreams.

Local leaders from all sectors came together for an evening that included inspiring talks from members of the Tree House community and a visit from the Phillie Phanatic! People were moved to sign up as volunteers, host book drives for our Books in Every Home campaign, and sponsor Take-Home Libraries for the children and families throughout the city. We are so thankful for the passion and commitment of our community and for the enthusiastic support of all who attended!
