See Who is stepping up!

Michelle Suarez, Prosper Lincoln’s Developer for Early Childhood, presented Barnes & Noble at Southpointe with the Prosper Lincoln Step Up award. 

Barnes & Noble selected Read Aloud Lincoln, a program inspired by Prosper Lincoln, to receive all donations to their annual Holiday Book Drive in November and December of 2018. All 2,200 books donated by Barnes & Noble's customers are distributed to preschool children all across Lincoln by Mary Reiman and Nancy Larimer, Co-Directors of Read Aloud Lincoln. 

“We know that reading aloud 15 minutes per day to a young child has tremendous benefits to the brain,” said Suarez. “Barnes & Noble’s generous contribution will help ensure books are in the homes of all children, especially those who may not have access to age-appropriate books.”
