The Gift of Reading: Public School Library Makeovers (PHOTOS)

In communities across the country, Target is sharing its love of education. In partnership with
The Heart of America Foundation, Target team member volunteers have helped transform 76 school libraries since 2007, through their Target School Library Makeovers program.

And that’s just the beginning. With 42 more libraries to be completed in 2011, Target is committed to giving kids everywhere the resources they need to learn.

In addition to books, each school library receives new computers, furniture and other essentials. Students are also given a set of books to take home so the whole family can share in the experience. Click through to see some of the amazing results in public schools around the country.
