“The SpeakEasy Bookmobile has made such a great impact on the families of NYCHA. Being able to own books and build at-home libraries is a key step in improving literacy skills. It’s been amazing to see the joy on children’s faces as they receive new books and we share in that joy knowing that a whole new world of opportunity can open up for our residents through literature. We look forward to continued partnership with The House of SpeakEasy for years to come.”

—DaVida Rowley-Blackman, Director, Public/Private Partnerships, NYCHA
