Durham Voice: Durham dreamers and readers celebrate MLK Day with donated books

Martin Luther King Jr. had a dream — and so does Book Harvest, a Durham nonprofit that hosted its ninth annual Dream Big Book Drive and Community Celebration last week.

“The Book Harvest dream is a world in which all children have books at home, and plenty of them,” Ginger Young, founder and executive director of Book Harvest, said in an email statement.

Over 1,000 visitors attended Dream Big at Rhythms Live Music Hall from 1-4 p.m. on Martin Luther King Jr. Day, Young said. A book drive, volunteer opportunity, activity fair and fundraiser all at once, Dream Big provided a string backpack for each child to fill with books that were laid out on tables throughout the venue.
