The organization Adopt A Book was started by Loveland youngsters Alex and Hannah Laman.
Twins Alex and Hannah Laman are sharing their love of reading with other local children through their organization, Adopt A Book Cincinnati .
The 11-year-olds say they started the program in November 2011, after reading about several schools in the Cincinnati area that don't have enough books for students or even a library. The Loveland-based pair decided to take matters into their own hands.
“We saw that there was a school that didn’t even have a library or staff and we wanted to donate books," Alex said.
To date, they've collected and donated more than 45,000 books to dozens of organizations, schools and programs serving children in need and promoting literacy.
Hannah, Alex and their mother Angela stopped by WCPO to talk about their project and how you can help.
Learn about how they got started, what they’ve accomplished so far and where they plan for their project to go in the media player above.
