Librarians Across the Country Join the LML Movement to Accelerate Funding and Reading

Mansfield, TX -- In a groundbreaking departure from the status quo, Love My Library ("LML"), home to the reimagined book fair, has ignited a movement, challenging the long-standing dominance of Scholastic in the book fair market.

“Scholastic's stronghold on the educational book fair market has left educators and administrators with limited options, fostering a sense of frustration that resonates through classrooms and libraries,” said Toby Cunningham, CEO of Read-A-Thon Fundraising. “Recognizing this pent-up demand for change, Love My Library introduces an alternative that caters to the diverse needs of schools, breaking free from the constraints of the Scholastic control.
