All members of BookMentors.org, including donors and teachers, are BookMentors in one way or another—just suggesting a book or posting a book tribute are ways of contributing to our mission: Connecting donors directly with teachers and students in need of books. BookMentors’ compass logo speaks to pointing a student in the right direction, to literacy, knowledge and the love of reading for reading’s sake.
Books are mentors all by themselves, broadening their readers’ horizons. Teachers are, of course, mentors—giving students that one-to-one contact that is so vital to their educational and personal growth. Donors help mentor through donations of books, and through their direct support of teachers so they can do what they do best: teach!
