Nothing beats cracking open a new book for the first time. Who doesn’t love books? Teachers love books. Students love books. We love books.On October 18 and 19, we translated that love of books into the #FillEveryShelf match offer: for two days, all donations to book projects were doubled. For 48 hours, there was an incredible outpouring of support from book-lovers across the country.
