“A project to open ‘Libromats’ in South Africa aims to simultaneously address two needs identified by mothers and caregivers: childhood education and laundry facilities. Libromats are intended to function as both an affordable laundry service and a training center for parents to learn techniques to read with their children. The centers also function as a library stocked with children’s books. Although it is small in scale, this program represents an innovative approach to addressing gaps in childhood education. As one mother who attended the Libromat sessions stated, ‘I am a working mother, so more often than not I am tired. But now I make time to share something in a book with my daughter every night.’”
