Children from low-income families have limited access to books while outside of school, and Barbershop Books combats this issue by creating child-friendly reading spaces in barbershops. All ticket purchase will help put fun children’s books in NYC barbershops. Barbershop Books won the National Book Foundation’s 2017 Innovations in Reading Prize.
