Keith Valley Middle School Library: Project LIT

Start your assignments in your school library with these great resources!

What is Project LIT Community?

We are a national, grassroots LITeracy movement, a network of dedicated teachers and students who are committed to increasing access to culturally relevant books and promoting a love of reading in our schools and communities. We work together to:

  • Empower students as READERS and LEADERS in their school and community.
  • Host monthly or quarterly Project LIT Book Clubs.
  • Flood our schools and communities with high-quality, culturally relevant books.
  • Champion & celebrate reading daily.
  • Inspire and support one another through sharing of lesson plans, resources, strategies, and book recommendations.
  • Create opportunities for students to connect with peers around the country.
  • Advocate for policies & practices that will help our students become lifelong leaders.
