I was shocked to discover that the Bronx, a New York City Borough with a population of 1.4 million people, has no bookstores. Although the Bronx has undergone an amazing transformation during the past decade,its last remaining bookstore chose to shut down in December. But you can help local crusading bibliophile and entrepreneur Noele Santos bring books back to the Bronx by supporting her Indiegogo crowdfunding campaign.
Back in September, Santos won a start-up competition sponsored by the New York Public Library and has been using the seed money to get “The Lit bar” off the ground. Every little bit helps.
