Board Option Award-Lisa Gerard-2021 Freedom Through Literacy

Board Option Award – $300

Lisa Gerard – “Little Read Wagon”

Tackling communities with “book deserts” in the town of Norman,Oklahoma, Lisa Gerard began a mini library at a local laundromat in 2020. From there, the reading ball started rolling!Since that laundromat library, Lisa has added a lending library and a volunteer program in order to collect and distribute culturally relevant books at community events. In just one year,Lisa has distributed more than 10,000 books to children and adults. We proudly award Lisa a Board Option Award to celebrate her work towards building a reading community.

This outreach program engages and inspires a great love for reading with a passionate ambition.” – Lisa Gerard
