Harlem Children’s Zone Promise Academy received a great gift from Kumon, a new Library. Kumon hopes the excitement over the new library and books will encourage reading by the students.

Kumon representatives said they hope their donation will encourage business and organizations to invest in children’s literacy. Kumon’s donation is part of their annual book drive, which this year raised more than 12,000 books. You can read more here.
