Sometimes it feels like summer was invented to be spent in the park with a good book. But have you ever felt that your time spent reading could spark impact as well?

Then turn your good reads into good deeds by starting an Action Book Club with the international nonprofit The Little Free Library.

The GR book tucked in a Little Free Library in Baltimore.

We are honored that Girl Rising: Changing the World One Girl at a Time by Tanya Lee Stone was included in the Action Book Club’s current theme, “Many Voices”.

“Many Voices” is a powerful message for all readers - designed to celebrate the diverse experiences of humans throughout the world and the magic of storytelling to help us connect across those differences.

What makes your Action Book Club different than a traditional book club?

In addition to reading and discussing inspiring books with friends, family, or other community members, you can also take that energy off the page and out into the world by taking action.

Create a service project of your own or get ideas from the Action Book Club’s Activities List and Girl Rising Take Action Guide.

We love this LFL shot from Sudan!

Programs like the Action Book Club remind us that sometimes the best place to start enacting change is within our own minds and communities. We can’t think of a better way to spend our summer reading, can you?
