I’ve posted in the past about how, thanks to the Friends Of The Davis Library, we’ve been able to provide thousands of free books to students and their families for their own home libraries. I’ve also posted about studies that have shown the importance of these kinds of home libraries (see “Home Libraries Provide Huge Educational Advantage”).

Stephen Krashen, the well-known education researcher, has written a short piece going a little more in-depth on one of those studies, and sharing similar research. Once you go to the link, just scroll down a little bit until you see his byline.
