Lerner Publishing Group Partners with AdoptAClassrom.org to Give Away Classroom Libraries to Teachers

Lerner Publishing Group™ has teamed with AdoptAClassroom.org to support classrooms nationwide as part of AdoptAClassroom.org’s vendor marketplace. To celebrate this new partnership, Lerner will fund three Read for a Better World classroom library prizes for educators. The curated Read for a Better World classroom libraries for grades K-5 support reading instruction, promote literacy, and provide access to engaging books that help students grow as readers and as people in the classroom and beyond.

“As both companies are based in Minneapolis, Lerner is excited to partner with AdoptAClassroom.org to give back to Minnesota teachers who work so hard for our children and communities,” said Adam Lerner, Publisher and CEO of Lerner Publishing Group. “We’re excited to offer our diverse and award-winning books as a new option on AdoptAClassroom.org, which is an innovative nonprofit that helps teachers raise funds to buy supplies and books for their classrooms.”

“Teachers sign up on AdoptAClassroom.org to provide their students a better education,” said Ann Pifer, Executive Director of AdoptAClassroom.org. “A partnership with Lerner Publishing Group will allow tens of thousands of students each year to access books that engage their curiosity and reflect their experiences. The vast majority of the classrooms we serve are considered high-needs and would not be able to provide these resources to their students without the support of AdoptAClassroom.org and our vendor network. This partnership contributes to an excellent education for all learners.”

A staggering 96% of teachers purchase classroom items with their own money, spending an average of $750 per year. AdoptAClassroom.org helps teachers and certified school staff raise funds to purchase books and other supplies for their classrooms through crowdfunding, grants, corporate sponsorships, and giveaways. Teachers can enter the sweepstakes by visiting lernerbooks.pages.salesfusion.com/Adopt-A-Classroom-Sweeps by March 20, 2023, for a chance to win a complete Read for A Better World classroom library featuring 31 carefully curated books, plus 25 copies of the Read for a Better World Student Action and Reflection Guide, donated by Lerner Publishing Group.
