"DIVERSIFY IT!" Reading Challenge

"DIVERSIFY IT!" Reading Challenge

Inspired by the Pizza Hut BOOK IT! reading challenge in PreK-6 grade schools, we're hosting a higher education remix to encourage UVA students, faculty, and staff to read diverse stories. Each month we'll be hosting themed pop-up libraries within the School of Education and Human Development that include children's, young adult, and adult books. For February we are celebrating Black authors! Everyone who checks out a book from our February pop-up library will recieve a "Free People Read Freely" bookmark.

Each month you will get a stamp on your "DIVERSIFY IT!" challenge card if you check-out a book. At the end of the semester, if you have checked-out at least one book each month from our pop-up libraries, you'll recieve a special prize and we'll celebrate with a pizza party!

The "DIVERSIFY IT!" program is funded in part thanks to the UVA Library IDEA Committee and the School of Education and Human Development's Office of Diversity, Equity and Inclusion.
