Abstract

In this article I share my story of involvement in a national literacy initiative known as the African American Read-In (AARI) in a major city of the "Show-Me State," Springfield, Missouri, population 164,122 (according to a 2013 census). The article highlights successes that public school librarians and university librarians are experiencing as we work together to promote diversity and reading through a community-wide effort. Our collaborative efforts may inspire other educators to learn more about the AARI and to become involved.
