Community Engagement in 2020


Our research lab organized a Book Drive to distribute book donations to Little Libraries across America.

Our goal was to get kids reading about diversity, identity, and related topics.

If you are interested in supporting our efforts, see the attached flyer!

Here is the link to the lab’s Amazon Wishlist of books for donation ideas. https://www.amazon.com/hz/wishlist/ls/1UGPEKX8MW8KG…

~Thank you so much for considering a donation.~


November 24th Update: We have been collecting books for less than a week and have already been able to collect over 40 books thanks to the generosity of many individuals. We will start distributing the books in December and will post a number of updates as more books come in. Thank you to everyone who is supporting the book drive with supportive messages, positive thoughts, and donations if they were able.


December 23rd Update: We have collected over 100 books for our holiday book drive thanks to the generosity of many individuals! We have started distributing the books across the Denver area – specifically, 2-3 books to over 50 Little Libraries so far. The pictures below show some of the different locations where we have distributed donations. Thank you to everyone who is supporting the book drive with supportive messages, positive thoughts, and donations.


January 2021 Update: After distributing over 100 books that were donated during our holiday book drive, many individuals and groups contacted us to say thanks! The pictures below show some of the different preschool classes that used the books as part of their class lessons and during reading time. Thank you to everyone who is supporting the book drive with supportive messages, positive thoughts, and donations! It is making a difference in a number of ways! (faces blurred for privacy)
