Alumnae spearheading campaign for digital girls’ library collection in Haiti

Studies have shown that males are represented nearly twice as often as females in books for children. Now Yale alumnae aim to empower girls around the globe through the creation of the Library For All Girls’ Collection.

Gwen Tilghman and Lauren Hoffman, both Yale College Class of 2014, are working with the non-profit Library For All on the first-of-its-kind digital girls’ library collection. Library For All seeks to close the gap in quality education through cloud-based digital libraries filled with locally relevant e-books.
