Wishlists 2024

Wishlist 2024

Please help us provide library programs and new books this school year!

Libraries and literacy initiatives remain a bright spot for thousands of children in the Eastern Caribbean.

Let’s make waves of change! We are excited to launch our CLASS program fundraising campaign for the 2023-24 academic year. It has been an amazing year with all students back to fully in-person learning. The enthusiasm for libraries is high, and the excitement has us working double time. We are eager to support our students with the literacy support they need to thrive.

The schools and community libraries below represent a handful of the more than 435 primary and secondary schools that are a part of the Hands Across the Sea CLASS program. These partners have been selected to receive a top-up, rejuvenation, or a brand-new library based on both need and merit. We are also humbled to expand on our work supporting underserved communities with a targeted Special Needs Library collection as a part of a regional effort to ensure every child has the opportunity to succeed. This year’s library collections will be another big step for us in our multi-year effort to build culturally responsive texts to support academic needs and social and emotional learning for students throughout the Eastern Caribbean. With interesting titles and reliable literacy support, we look forward to doing our part to inspire and motivate more than 20,000 young learners and future leaders.

This year, schools can look forward to receiving an order of top-quality books from CaribbeanReads and a catalogue of world class titles from Scholastic and Penguin. Like you, we are eager to keep young minds and imaginations growing. We hope you will take a look at the list below and that you will join us in support of this important and timely mission.

From Read Aloud tours to traveling bookmobiles, Vernest and Hyacinth, our two Literacy Links, work tirelessly to bring literacy to every child while ensuring that school libraries are well maintained and properly utilized. Antigua is setting the standard for many of our academic recovery programs in the region.
