The Kindle Classroom Project promotes the love and power of reading among high school students in Oakland.

Founded in 2011 by Mark Isero, the KCP now serves 1,000 students and 29 teachers in 7 schools. Students receive a Kindle and access to a growing library of 984 books, 24 hours a day—including over the summer.

The program believes that independent reading builds hearts and minds. Students may choose books that match their interests, and every book in the Kindle Library originates as a student request.

“Thank you for the opportunity to read to my heart's content.”
—Liniquer, 10th grader
