Description:

From the Dahl (Kathleen) Freedom Summer Collection. A typed letter from Elinor Lerner on the letterhead of COFO in Vicksburg, Mississippi, explains that teachers in Warren County, Mississippi, do not need a donation of used textbooks and that the library attached to the Freedom School in Vicksburg has a large enough quantity of used textbooks. Lerner mentions boycotts and the setting up of Freedom Schools in Sharkey and Issaquena Counties. She discusses after-school programs in development and the need for funds and help from community groups to convert unused building space into study and reading areas.

Electronic version made available through a National Leadership Grant for Libraries from the Institute for Museum and Library Services.
